RAAF Spitfire Mk.VIII aerial (? antenna) configuration?


Recommended Posts

VHF radio aerial was short enough to be contained inside the aerial mast, therefore invisible. By the time of the VIII's entry into Pacific theatre service, the long IFF aerials, from fuselage to tailplanes, had been replaced by a single bar aerial (about 12" long, and 1" wide, and there's at least one photo where it's visible) under the starboard wing, roughly in line with, and just in front of, the inner aileron hinge.
