Y2-K Spitfire Cutaway EN398 as flown by Flight Lieutenant Arnold Walter Rosey Roseland who was killed in action on 13 July 1944.
In 1999, members of the Comox Air Force Museum, on Vancouver Island, began a decade long project to construct a Supermarine Spitfire IX from the ashes of a former South African Air Force wreck. The wreck was rescued by Mark De Vries. When finished, this Spitfire will fly in the markings of one that served in the Second World War with the famous and still existing 442 Squadronbased today at Comox. The Y2-K markings it will carry are a tribute to the home squadron and to the Millennium fund that got the project started.
Our famous and highly detailed aircraft cutaway designs are presented here in full color on these handsome 11 ounce multiple use mugs.
The right hand side of this particular mug features the exterior side profile while the left hand side features the cutaway view. Both sides have a top and front view of the Spitfire.
