    I needed a cigarette after that, and I do not smoke!!!
    I spent a spring in Mildenahall back in 95ish timeperiod. Was able to visit Duxford and Cambridge regularly. While sitting along the river in Cambridge, I looked up and saw the Jug tooling around, maybe on a MX hop?
    Thanks for video
  4. Damn fine Worf, even had my favourite plane in it an AD-4 Skyraider.

    Awwwwwwwwwww yiss.

    I want one. Where can I buy one of these splendid machines?
  6. Great vid..wish I could be there!

  7. God, that's insane! Only problem, IMO, is the music - it doesn't need any! The planes are good enough. And, BTW, I win tonight's Lotto and I'm gonna pilot a P-51 in three years :)

    Heard that a twin was being restored in the US, must research this....
  12. Thanks for the love guys. It's absolutely GREAT to find like minds that can appreciate the power and the glory of prop driven aircraft. My fave part was when the Sopwith or Spad showed up, open pit yowsah! When all those planes musta been 30 or so did a final big wing flyby, my heart went thumpty thump. That's just a dribble could you imagine what it must of looked like, felt like to have squadron after squadron of bombers and fighters forming up and shoving off overhead? Thrilling I'm sure (if you weren't on the receiving end) shame that such artistry, beauty and innovation often come at such a high price. I'm no bleedin' heart believe me, I was a Sgt. in the Regulars, but it just saddens me a little that without war we'd have no Mustang, no Spit, no FW 190, no Yak 9, no Zeke and no Me 262. Just sayin....

  13. Great little ad.
    I was there in 2010 - when they had 16 Spitfires in the air. And I am going to attend this year too!!!
