North Korea reverse engineer the Spitfire from the Battle of Britain film. However did not realise the flying shots were from close ups in 4:3 format

When the Supermarine rep came down to the torpedo tube to find out why the Super-Submarine Spittoon-Fire didn't make it out of the tube, he saw that there was a basic flaw - the pilot drowned when they flooded the tube. Must remember to close the cockpit next time...

"Sorry Captain, it's all cancelled. Apparently someone sent a telegram to the War Department saying the project has gone down the tubes so they've told us to pull the plug on it".

In an attempt to improve the performance of the Spitfire, the designers went back to the old adage: "Its Quicker by Tube".
