    Re: Spitfire Flight - Experience of a life time

    5 mins ago we were watching Brian Cox in a Typhoon Eurofighter. The OH asked if I would have a go in one to which I said hell yes but if I was offered a choice between that and an old warbird like a Spit or Mustang I'd take the old prop every time.

    And now I see this!

    I'll second Chris - you are a very lucky b**tard.

    It is something I'm going to do one day.
