Great idea but - that’s not a V1 rocket & a spitfire could not catch a rocket so as to “tip” it.

Actually, I think that is a V-1 and it’s top speed was about the same as a Spitfire. V-2 would be different.

Thank you for the correction Bluesol. 100% V1, and the later versions of the Spitfire COULD match the V1`s for speed. In addition, this is an official photo, and many brave RAF pilots risked their lives sending V1`s off course in order to spare the people of London in WW2.

Learned something new. Did not know there were 2 operational rockets

Yes DrSarcasm - the subsonic V1, (I think flying at circa 450 mph). And the supersonic V2 which had a trajectory that took it into Space.
