Spitfire 944

This is off topic but I really enjoyed watching this.

An 83 year old American pilot from WWII sees the video of his wheels up landing of a Spitfire modified for photo reconnaissance for the first time. He flew 51 missions. Alone. Unarmed.

H/T to JoeyD Sr. for the email.

  1. Very cool. But it’s NOT off-topic. He was taking pictures of what explosives has done to targets. There is a lot of politics surrounding WW II. most Spitfires had guns. He had kids. Perfectly valid topic, and darn spiffy, to boot.

  2. Incredibly awesome, Joe! I’ve forwarded it to some very appreciative Air Force vets!
