Following the D-Day landings, Battle of Britain hero, Tom Neill was a assigned as an RAF liaison to an American fighter squadron. As the Allies pushed east, Neill commandeered an abandoned Spitfire as his own personal aeroplane. Erasing any evidence of its provenance and stripping it down to bare metal it became the RAF's only silver Spitfire. Alongside his US comrades, he took the Silver Spitfire into battle until, with the wars end, he was forced to make a difficult decision. Faced with too many questions about the mysterious fighter, he took it out over the south coast, rolled it on to it's back and bailed out, leaving the Silver Spitfire to dive to a watery grave.
