Spitfire

If you haven't already watched it there is fine 'homily'/documentary to the Spitfire on Netflix currently, called, would you believe, Spitfire.

I enjoyed it, but then I'm a bit of an aircraft nut.

I watched it last night. It is the best film about the Spitfire I have ever seen. The cinematography is first class. I particularly enjoyed the meeting between the now 100 yr old ferry pilot meeting the owner of one of the 50 Spitfire's still airworthy which she had flown and signed her name on. It is so good I'm going to watch it again tonight. Don't miss it.
