A couple of weeks ago we had a short display from the Vulcan; yesterday we had a Spitfire appear low overhead. I frantically summoned my 13 year old son who is going through an Airfix phase at the moment (that morning he'd bought himself a P51D Mustang to build) and we had the pleasure of a few moments together looking up at the sky, hands shading our eyes, whilst the Spitfire threw us a few of its shapes, did a quick victory roll and then headed off to the east (to the Goodwood Revival I assume?)
Oh man, seeing a Spitfire in full flight is quite a joy. Not only its gorgeous shape but especially the sound of the Merlin engine is something to behold.
It was indeed off to Goodwood which was where I was. We even got 5 glorious minutes from the Vulcan too. :)
Ah, vintage aviation...
