The PR.XIX was the final Photo Reconnaissance version of the Spitfire to see active RAF service. Produced by mating features of the Mk.XI Spitfire to the powerful Griffon engine of the XIV, the PR.XIX was one of the fastest and some say best looking of all the Spitfire variants.

Due to its role as a reconnaissance machine it featured no armament, intead relying upon its speed to evade any potential enemies. after the war the PR.XIX served in the Far East, operating over Hainan Island and performing the RAF's last ever operational sortie by a Spitfire over Malaya on the 10th of June 1957.
