Signed by Richard Beurling - Brother of George Beurling
The Man: George Beurling was Canada's highest scoring ace of WWII and one of
the top scoring Allied aces of the war. He was known for taking independent action
in combat, but was certainly one of the finest pilots and marksmen of the time
and a true Canadian hero. In this scene he is depicted just as he delivers the
final burst that sent his FW190 opponent to the waves below. This was his
31st victory. He would go on to score one more for a total of 32. In this scene
he is shown swooping out of formation after seeing the enemy fighter in his
mirror, and without telling his comrades! As his formation flew on, oblivious
to his actions, he proceeded to shoot down the opponent and return to formation
with none of his flight mates realizing it. Later, on landing, George casually
mentioned the victory to everyone's disbelief. Gun camera footage later
proved his story to be true!
George Beurling is shown here in the colors of RCAF 403 Squadron
in his personal Spitfire IX.
The Machine: In this image it is easy to see how the Spitfire got its name.
Armed with four .303" machine guns and two powerful 20mm cannon,
it could deliver a devastating blast of firepower upon its enemies. The
Spitfire Mark IX was considered to be one of the finest "Marks" by many
as it achieved a very high power-to-weight ratio while maintaining superb
handling. The Rolls-Royce Merlin engine powered the Spitfire IX and was
quite possibly one of the greatest piston engines ever developed. A huge
liquid cooled V12 displacing 1647ci (27L) with advanced materials and 4
valves per cylinder it was supercharged to over 32psi of boost and inter
-cooled. It produced some 1,700 horsepower at 3000 rpm. This was
enough to propel the Spitfire IX to 403 mph at 27,400 feet and provide
an astounding rate of climb and sustained turning ability. It had a service
ceiling of 41,000 feet. The Spitfire will always be remembered as a pilots'
airplane and have a special place in many aviation enthusiasts' hearts.
