I have come across a coupe of references in books regarding a Spitfire with a fixed spatted undercarriage. The only information is that it was probably a Mk.V modified after a bad landing with spatted undercarriage (a-la Ju87) possible from a Miles aerolane. Apparantly modified at a local/squadron level and used for taxiing practice. I have never seen any evidence but woudl be most interested if anyone knows anything more.
