Love the technical skill, idea and the finish  :bow:

Southampton born and bred, played on the Supermarine site as a nipper before the site was demolished for the 'new' Itchen bridge.


Just seems a touch sacreligious.

Thanks for all the positive comments everybody, even if it was not to your taste.
I'd love to try and make a flying foto, but that will need better weather than we have at the moment
And Mastery of photo shop or some such program :unsure: so not vey likely :rolleyes:
In my imagination I can see it making a low pass just above the grass coming straight at you...
If you can imagine 2 Griffons at full chat howling across an Airfield you'll be halfway there :thumbsup:
Then you just add Alain De Cadenet doing the introduction and.....

Be warned though when Alain expresses surprise at the Spitfires lowness, he does use one of the more
Basic Anglo-Saxon words :o
And I'd love to see some of those other suggestions come to fruit, the Mustang, 109 and particularly the Firefly

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

I LOVE that!  :thumbsup:

You don't see it coming as it's SO low! Who was flying it? It looks like Ray Hannah's work to me, he was always a master at the ultra-low pass.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

That camera must have been on a tripod as it never moved. I'm sure the camera man dove to the ground at some point.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!
