    I can't even imagine what it must have felt like for those brave young lads climbing in to a Spitfire and going up there to do battle .

    Same with the lads who flew in Lancaster's and Wellington bombers .

    Different breed dooali that generation , the like we are unlikely to see again .

    Should have been to Fairford this year. Rolled tickets over to next year.....
    What a cracking day out, if you’ve not been, it’s worth a go. Stuff like this every 10 minutes..... a day isn’t long enough
