The 541 Squadron was formed in October 1942 at RAF Benson, Oxfordshire, England. The squadron used Spitfire PR XIX to carry out reconnaissance missions over Europe until the end of WWII. By late 1944 the D-Day, June 6th 1944 stripes were worn on the fuselage only. No. 541 Squadron was disbanded on October 1, 1946 but reformed November 1, 1947. Still using the PR XIX they flew photographic reconnaissance and survey missions. The squadron continued to use the PR XIX until December 1950 when they were replaced with Meteors.

Supermarine Spitfire PR.Mk XIX

Designed by R.J.Michell to meet a British Air Ministry specification, the Supermarine Spitfire first flown on March 5th, 1936. With its combination of beautiful fighter design, the excellent performance of its Rolls-Royce Merlin powerplant and firepower provided by twin cannons and four machine guns, the Spitfire became an unrivaled symbol of victory. The Spitfire had 40 major variants and was built in greater numbers than any other British aircraft of the time. It flew operationally on every front between 1939 and 1945 and was engaged in every one of the Royal Air Force's major actions.
