The Spitfire Mk XVI was the same as the Mk IX in nearly all respects except for the engine, a Merlin 266. All Mk XVI aircraft produced were of the Low-Altitude Fighter variety. This was determined by the engine, which had been optimised for low-altitude operation. All production Mk XVIs had clipped wings for low altitude work and were fitted with the rear fuselage fuel tanks with a combined capacity of 75 gal. Many Mk XVIs featured cut-down rear fuselages with "bubble" canopies. On these aircraft the rear fuselage tank capacity was limited to 66 gal.

This book provides numerous colour photos of this classic aircraft.
