Re: Sea Fury forced landing in Harston, Cambs.

Final start, run up, taxi, take-off and the sad end result - thank goodness that the pilot and passenger survived!

Spitfire VE Day Flypast over East Grinstead

Most of us love the sight and sound of a Spitfire. This really lifted my spirits on VE Day yesterday. Hopefully it'll lift yours today too?
