Historical Warbird
The Spitfire Mk XVI was produced as a derivative of the Mk IX, primarily as a low-level fighter aircraft and as a bomber. The essential difference was the use of an American Packard Merlin 266 instead of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 66. The 266 engine was introduced at the end of 1944.
