Thanks for sharing. Yes, we certainly do owe people like him a big debt - thank you.
I love the old Spitfires. What really gets me though is when you read interviews with some of their pilots (who later went onto be test pilots for a whole variety of planes) they all say that plane is their favourite flying experience - the closest to being a bird that they ever experienced.
As some of you are pilots or former pilots, could you explain why that is? Is it just handling / movement or is there more to it?
