Spitfires: "Up in the Air, I fly..."

I was in Duxford this weekend, just outside Cambridge, escorting Bram to the Duxford Air Show, a display of old war birds, (English, American and German). I have to admit that the Spitfires remain the most breathtaking. Check them out as a group of them line up to come in and perform fly past. As they roar past, their Rolls Royce Merlin engines screaming and their elliptical wings silhouetted against the sky, you can't help but stop breathing for the briefest of seconds. I was also pretty impressed by the German Focke wulf, which thrashed its way around the sky as it were fresh off the factory line, (and not over sixty years old!)
