There was not one single monoplane in squadron service in 1936 when Wilfred Freeman accepted the task of choosing the aircraft with which to rearm the RAF. Freeman's ruthless quest for quality and exceptional organisational ability resulted in the RAF being equipped with a superb range of aircraft from the Spitfire and Lancaster to the Mosquito (Freeman's Folly) and the Merlin-powered Mustang.
