Two fantastic pictures of Spitfires being manufactured at Castle Brom.
The first showing the assembly line.
The second on the tarmac waiting to be flown out, i'm not certain but I think the women in white boiler suits are the pilots that flew them to their respective squadrons.
Castle Bromwich Spitfires to be returned to the uk.
Some fantastic information about Spitfire manufacture at Castle Brom.
Scroll down to the third post by John C, fascinating.
Amazing! I don't remember seeing a wing in the roof when I worked there but there again I didn't spend me time looking up
I wish I had known all this when I worked in C block, which was then the press shop.
If you save the picture at the bottom you get a better version of it, one you can read.

Yes fascinating stuff. I like the rules
Great video. Isn't that the best sound in the world
Came across these by accident earlier this morning. Thought they'd be worth sharing. Hope the Artists don't mind?
