An interesting selection, and the three spits is a good catch, but why are the pilots running away from the aircraft?

Creating that baywatch effect :grin: Nice shots there like the Kent Spitfire Shot,
Supporting WZ507.

The Americans claim victory right at the end.

Well with only 10 hours average training on Spitfires and an 80% chance of not surviving their first combat sortie, I don't really blame them.

errr I could'nt get in by the way so went back to Yorkshire in a rant.

The b&w re-enactors are excellent :clap: - not that the rest aren't good too! They'd lend themselves to a caption competition.
