Spitfire OUV. A Truly Emotional Start-Up. www.ml407.co.uk
Nick Grace bought the 2 seat Spitfire in 1979 in a dismantled state and
after 5 years of work took off with his wife Carolyn on their first flight.
Apart from the substantial task of general re-assembly the fuselage and
wings were essentially as they left the factory but a large amount of the
work involved stripping back to bare metal and re-riveting after treatment
with modern anticorrosives which is why OUV is still operational today with
no corrosion. Tragically Nick was killed in a car accident in 1988 but his
widow continues to fly OUV. This short clip is taken from the film "Perfect
Lady" which covers the full story of OUV's restoration. It and other videos
are available from Carolyn's website with all profits going to maintain the
Spitfire in flying condition.

modern racing cars look dangerous, then this should be an eye-opener. The
noise is incredible.
