    Hello,
    Around 600 Spitfires in different version served in the U.S. Army Air Force and Navy.
    Fighter group was composed of three squadrons of 16 fighters. Initially USAAF used Mk. V and in August 1943 MTO units received Mk.IX and XVIII planes
    For example :
    31st Fighter Group. Fought in Dieppe, North Africa and Italy. In March 1944 P-51B Mustangs started to replace Spitfire IX.
    52d Fighter Group. Fought in North Africa and Italy. It was assigned to protect the allied fleet from air attacks off Anzio beachhead. In April 1944 P-51B Mustangs started to replace Spitfire IX.

    Why has the picture of your Spitfire got an American star on it and not the RAF roundel? It is a British aircraft
