Saw this picture earlier in the week somewhere or other and I wasn't sure if it's a genuine photo or a super-imposed picture

I have seen other photos of the same planes in different positions. I didn't think modern planes were painted like that anymore?

They aren't but they sometimes do paint jobs for photo shoots and promotions etc so it could be the real deal. I'm not convinced though on this pic'

It's a good job if it's been photo shopped? That Hurricane would have been going as fast as it could go and the Typhoon going as slow as it could go

Great Aircraft the Defiant was Frothy. From what I've read, several RAF Squadrons used the Defiant during the Battle of Britain with a good kill rate. The only reason they weren't as famous as the Spitfire or the Hurricane was that they lacked the speed.
The Fleet Air Arm operated 17 Squadrons of the Defiant but remarkably there are very few photo's of the Aircraft .(I only have one pic in my collection).
Boulton Paul built their Aircraft in Wolverhampton and until recently there was a fantastic museum there but it was closed and demolished to make way for the new Land Rover Plant.
Boulton Paul also made another great plane for the navy which spent nearly 25 years in service.. The Boulton Paul Sea Balliol.

You love your Spitfires don't you mate?
Nice aircraft though, I must admit. I love to see them flying.
