Title: Around the World in a Silver Spitfire
Post by: NARSES2 on August 03, 2019, 02:10:50 am
Was listening to Dermot O'Leary (who turns out to be a huge Spitfire fan) on Radio 2 this morning and he had a long chat with one of the pilots of this beauty. :wub: :wub:

Paine is 10 miles from where I sit and we're under the pattern, mebbe I'll see

The 'Silver Spirfire' got back yesterday, after a four month circuit of the Earth.  :thumbsup:

However, the media have acted as ignorant as they usually are in such cases, TWICE reporting the aircraft as '.....a 1944 vintage jet......'

Sometimes I REALLY want to physically knock some sense into their heads!  :banghead: :banghead:

In defence of some sections of the media today's I newspaper had quite a lengthy report on the flight and a short history of the aircraft it'self, including her war service. And yes the word jet was not used.
