...and it was totally awesome. I was out on the motorbike and rode down to Selsey. The roads were relatively quiet, the weather was nice and fish and chips were eaten by the sea. All good stuff. Anyway, I dropped into Goodwood on the return to home. After seeing a Ferrari and Porsche ripping it around the motor circuit, I went over to the aerodrome. Just by luck, there was a twin seater Spitfire there just about to be fuelled up after it had taken somebody out on one those 'experience' flights. The pilot said he was about to leave to fly back to Cambridge so like a little kid I waited for it to start up and take off. It's the closest I've been to a Spitfire and that Merlin engine made my knees tremble when it started up.
Listen to that!
