MORE ADDED: Spitfire A2A over Kent

Post by rjlaker »

Hi all,

Went up on a flight with Aero Legends from Headcorn today. Added bonus was that the photoship was a DH Dove. Here's a quick shot of TD314. More to come

TD314 is a fine example.

About as good looking a Spitfire as you can get and you've done it superb justice.

Some great shots there Rob - you were certainly blessed with lovely weather for the flight.

I'm now adding a flight with a Spitfire to my 40th's present list - along with a trip to New York (I can dream!! lol)
