Indeed. Great shot. Love that heat radiation in the air around the engine. Man I'd love to see that flight. I'm a fan of the British planes. Hawker Typhoon is my fav.

Thanks Adam - the Spitfires certainly are an awesome thing to see in the air. I've been lucky enough to fly in formation with them several times!

Way, cool... There are 2 Spitfires flying in Temora NSW (Australia) near where I live but have never seen this before. Awesome...!!!
