The Haynes Company is world famous for it's highly regarded series of Owners Workshop Manuals for cars, motorbikes and light commercial vehicles. However, in 2007 they diversified their range of books by producing (in conjunction with the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight) a workshop manual for the Supermarine Spitfire. Since then they have continued and expanded their range of manuals to include many other historic aircraft, tanks and military vehicles, all produced on a limited basis.

This manual covers the Supermarine Spitfire from 1936 onwards (all Marks). Published in 2007 and authored by Paul Blackah MBE and Alfred Price, the manual concentrates on the maintenance and construction details of the 'high back' Spitfire MkIX, with many detailed full colour photographs of the BBMF Spitfire under maintenance in the BBMF hangars.
