5th March 1936
« on: March 05, 2016, 01:49:22 PM »
I went down to the Solent today expecting to see something similar to the flypast from Five years ago and ten years ago, which was basically a re-enactment of the original test flight.  Out of Eastleigh down the Itchen to Hythe, turn left, down the Solent to the Isle of wight 180 degree turn then Home for tea and cake.  ;D

What we got (eventually as the weather was a bit pants) was a good 10 minutes display over Woolston and the Dock Head, followed by a fairly low level departure in the direction of the Island with a very nice victory roll thrown in over Fawley.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

The best Spitfire flypast ever...

Sorry about the language.
I'll never give up on the dream!

Me too.  I've seen several 'low pass' videos, but nothing else comes close.
