Arch One, Overhead
An imposing quarter-scale radio-controlled model of the WW2 Supermarine Spitfire fighter airplane, built by Ken Manley.
Like all the other large overhead aircraft in the museum, this is a proper flying radio-controlled model, as evidenced by the scuffs and bangs on the wing leading edges and underside of the nose, from rough landings.
This huge flying model model has a nine-foot-seven-inch-wingspan, and is fitted out with a number of gimmicks, including a retractable undercarriage.
