10 Spitfire Scramble - Goodwood 2011
Lord March's Big Wing...... If you know your history and engineering, then the sight and sound of 10 Spitfires at Goodwood 2011 Revival cannot fail to move you. I go to the Revival each year as a way of remembrance to my Dad, who among other things, worked on the Spitfire. This year left me with a lump in my throat.... He would have loved this.... I loved it.... Unbelievable....

Spitfire MK XVI - First Engine Run in 17 Years!
Our Spitfire MK XVI rolled out of the hangar for its first engine run in 17 years! I had been flying it after we opened Fantasy of Flight, but there was like an AD on the landing gear bolts and we grounded it. It took several years to get the proper bolts but by then we'd moved on to other things and it just sat. Well we've finally gotten back on it, and here's the first engine run we've done on her in 17 years. At first it didn't want to start. The mixture control is not marked on the throttle quadrant and I may have flooded it . . . so we came back later for another try, and we got it running. Here's the clip. We still have a bit of work to finish painting the newly covered tail feathers and hooking them all up. Also, Andy's been dealing with some leaky undercarriage legs and it seems we have a leak in the air system as the brake pressure didn't come up as fast as it should. Hopefully, we'll get all that sorted out and we'll be able to get it flying soon. KERMIT WEEKS Want more of the Spitfire? Watch this clip next... https://youtu.be/8OydGSADtYw
