Battle of Britain comes to Texas!

An established aviation business is coming to Texas. The Cisco Municipal Airport (3F2), just west of Fort Worth, will soon echo with the sounds of aircraft kit construction. Michael O'Sullivan, owner of Supermarine Aircraft, has been making scale Supermarine Spitfire fighters for the last 20 years. Founded in Brisbane, Australia, Supermarine sells Spitfire kits worldwide. A marketing decision brings the company to Texas.


At the Cisco airport, the hangar is going up and the tooling equipment is being shipped. This all aluminum follow-on to the famous WWII fighter from Great Britain is powered by a liquid cooled General Motors LS2, 364 cu.in. V8 engine, delivering 430 HP! Mike O'Sullivan /Supermarine have invested the necessary money over the last 20 years to make a superb product that produces the famed handling qualities of the legacy Spitfire at a fraction of the cost.
