This Supermarine Spitfire HF VII was one of the high-altitude versions of the famous fighter, its normal elliptical wingtips replaced by extended "pointed" tips for its high-altitude role. This photo, taken on September 7, 1944, is one of the Langley aircraft that has survived. It is in the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum's collection.
