Built To Last. Built For Impact.

RAF Spitfire pilots in WWII during the Battle of Britain. Life expectancy: perhaps 10 sorties.* Impact: “Never in the field of human conflict have so many, owed so much, to so few …”

I rest my case.
(For now.)

(*One Google reference claims the life expectancy was 45 minutes of flight time.)
