Vickers Supermarine Spitfire Mk IXc PV270
One of the most successful and numerous versions of the legendary British fighter, Spitfire PV270 is, in all essential respects, identical to the Mk 1X flown by RNZAF WGCDR Al Deere, DFC and Bar, DSO, OBE, CDEG, DFC (US) from 1943 as commander of the fighter units based at the famous RAF Base Biggin Hill.
PV270 has been restored to look identical – except for the lack of weaponry – to the aeroplane that carried the identification letters AL on scores of missions.
Weeks before the Battle of Britain, July-October 1940 King George V1 awarded Deere his first Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC). In the course of the great air conflict he won his second (the bar). His war career record was 22 enemy aircraft down, 10 probable, 10 damaged. He was New Zealand’s second-ranking ace after GPCAPT Colin Gray.
