Spitfire Mk.IXe, MK329, flown by W/Cdr J. E. Johnson, CO of No. 144 Wing, June 1944
Aircraft allegedly related to the beer barrels is MK329. This aircraft was used by Johnnie Johnson,
according to his memoirs he flew it twice. Rumor has it that he brought beer to his men in Normandy flying
MK329. Spitfire MK329 is a real mystery. It is not listed as produced by any of the factories. Johnson mentioned that it was assembled from wrecked airframes and carried no guns. Johnson only flew it once, never in
combat, since it carried no guns, and was a mix-and-match airframe, cobbled together out of spare parts.
