R.J. Mitchell (1895-1937) sitting foreground right in the main cabin of a Supermarine Swan II, c 1920s. Trained as an engineer, Mitchell was led by his interest in aircraft to join the Vickers Armstrong Supermarine Company in 1916, where he soon became chief designer. He designed world- beating sea-planes for the Schneider Trophy races (1922-1931) and later the famous Spitfire, the triumph of which he did not live to see. He also designed the Swan.
