A total of 20,351 Spitfires of all types were eventually built, plus 2,408 seafires modified to operate from aircraft carriers.
Anyone ever heard of the Wellington? Only two are left in the whole world and I am very proud to say that my Great Grandfather flew one of the two existing ones.

Do a Web search on Historical societies. You'd be surprised at how many societies are rebuilding vintage aircraft.

I also read that the Spits were piloted by RAF pilots that were on active duty. They had a list of requirements to apply for these positions, and just about every pilot was beating down the door for the chance to fly.
