The Mk. IX replaced the Mk. V in June 1942 and on September 12, 1942 a Mk. IX brought down a
Ju-86R flying at 43,000 feet. Another major achievement of the Mk. IX took place on October 5,
1944 when 401 Squadron became the first allied aircraft to shoot down an Me-262 jet. Even with
the arrival of the Griffon powered Mk. XIV the Mk. IX continued in service until the end of WWII.
There were 5,665 Mk. IX Spitfires and its variants produced.

Ezer Weizman joined the RAF in 1943 serving in India as a pilot. He became a pilot for the
Haganah flying in the Arab-Israeli War of 1948. With the establishment of the State of Israel he
served as Chief of Operations on the General Staff, Commander of Ramat David Air Base and
Commander of the Israeli Air Force from 1958 to 1966 retiring in 1969. In 1977 he became
Defense Minister and eventually President of Israel. His favorite aircraft was Black #57 Spitfire
which he used over many years.
