Achtung Spitfire

So there I was, minding my own business, setting up a banner on the runway at Rochester, when this Spitfire appeared and started to buzz me. Good thing I had my camera to hand.

By coincidence the car in the photo below that was on show at Deanland airfield, has a Spitfire Merlin engine installed.

The noise is unmistakable and the petrol consumption, well, out of this world!

There are some things you remember all your life.
1-a new-born baby's first cry
2-A baby's first smile
3-and then the first laugh
4-The sound of a Spitfire at full throttle.
All Priceless
