Help the Spitfire win the "Great British design quest" .

The BBC is having a competition for the best British design , and the Spitfire is of course amongst the final 10 nominations .


Although some of the other designs are also remarkable , surely the Spitfire deserves to win this competition .

Pay tribute to its designer Mr. Mitchell , and vote in favour of this extremely elegant design .

You can cast 1 vote here : http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/cultureshow/designquest/vote/

Well, as a guy who covers elections, I'd say that the Spit's chances are unfairly compromised by it's presentation on that web page.

It's the only design in the competition where a black and white picture is used instead of color. It's a static pose, sitting on the ground. Finally, that's not even a Spitfire. It's a Seafire with that ugly chin-hood on it that goes a long way toward spoiling the plane's looks.

More than 40,000 Spitfires were produced in 40 versions of Mitchell's original design until it was retired from active service in 1954.
