History

Geschichte

Die als BKh-14 Bezeichneten Spitfire waren die ersten Jagdflugzeuge der RTAF nach dem Krieg. Aus Beständen der RAF konnten 1950  29 Maschinen übernommen werden. Nur 24 Maschinen wurden in flugtüchtigen Zustand versetzt, die restlichen dienten als Ersatzteilspender. Die PR Mk.19 wurde als Jäger von der 1. Staffel der 1. Wing und später der 41 Staffel des 4. Wing eingesetzt. Die Spitfire ersetzten die Ki.43 Hayabusa. 1954 wurden von der RTAF vier FR Mk.14 als Aufklärer übernommen, doch schon 1955 wurden die Maschinen aus dem Dienst genommen.
