Spitfire at Sywell

It's been a fabulous Autumn day and I've been working from Sywell aerodrome outside Northampton, where they were busy having some kind of corporate day, a two-seat Spitfire and the 'Blades' display team included.

I had a personal banner to display up near Junction 20 of the M1, about 18 miles from Sywell and was surprised to discover a giant windmill farm, adjacent to the target, which doesn't appear on any CAA charts. This just illustrates how fast these things are springing-up, like giant mushrooms, all over the countryside and faster than they can be marked as a hazard to low-flying aircraft like mine.

Anyway, here's another Spitfire photo for enthusiasts and the video I shot this afternoon. Apparently this is not Caroline Grace's two seater but the new one based at Duxford. It still gave an impressive display, with the characteristic throaty growl of its Rolls Royce Merlin engine.
