guys....read it...from the files of Alistair Cave......
Alistair bequeathed material to the BSAOC and in that was his factory weekly production register. The production of Spitfires were as follows:-
1964/65 Spitfire Hornet 2139
1966 Spitfire MkII 3719
1967 Spitfire MkIII 3058
1968 Spitfire Mark IV 471
This excludes the Mark III Spitfires upgraded to Mark IV specification. These are composite figures and so each year would have home, USA East Coast, West Coast and export specification models.
mirror, mirror on the wall, what Spitfire is the rarest of them all?
man oh man...I would love a breakdown of the specific markets, but I have info from the BSA OC that between 70% - 80% were exported to the US.
hope this settles some bets..I know i was ecstatic to find this out...
