I notice that this is a two-seater... is the Spitfire going multirole?

Great design!

This looks a LOT like the Su-50 Firefox, but hey, the Russians stole the Rolls-Royce Nene engine from the UK, so this is payback!

Think you're on the something there, and wonder if a UK aero builder would ever use that name again, now that they have re-used typhoon.

You know I love this thing, only problem is that the UK is not going to be able to build any indigenous aircraft like this anytime soon.

Their aerospace industry has gone to hell in a hand-basket lately which is really sad. They've created some amazing machines in the past.

Yup-yup, now THAT's what i'm talking about!

;)

Like Battle of Britain style!

Now we need a Lancaster II and a Hurricane II, line them up with a Typhoon EFA 2000 and we got a flypast just waiting to happen.

Nice! reminds me of the old "invasion stripes" that they gave allied aircraft during the D-day landings to help avoid friendly fire incidents.
