    The Black Spitfire

    A unique series of selected pictures, taken in flight from a short distance, of a single Spitfire Mk. IX aircraft that is still being regularly flown by the Israel Air Force Museum, over 60 years after it was produced. The aircraft is painted with a shiny black color, that looks best in the Mediterranean's bright sunlight, and decorated with a red nose, red lightning from nose to tail at its sides, and red tail stripes.
