It's a question that has been asked many times and dosent seem to actually have an answer: Was the Sumermarine Spitfire or the Messerschmitt Bf-109 better? Both airplanes were the leading fighters for their respective sides and will always be remembered as the two great of the Battle of Brittain. History TV has a segment running which had asked the same question. The result was a stalemate. But can we come up with an answer? What plane was better? The 'Spit or the '109?
