Love the sound??? Come on, you can do better that that my friend! ;) ;) (just kiddin')

This was a shot taken at Duxford as mentioned earlier. I didn't have the possibility to convert it from my digicam to a mpeg or wmv so Barlow took the oppertunaty and did a fine job. So there you go guys. Couldn't with-hold this fine piece of video. The quality may not be as good but that's caused by viewing this particular footage over and over and over again! 8)

I decided to put this footage on this site cause the very close surprise high speed pass of this XIV gave me the chills like nothing did before :shock: !

Enjoy ;) !

Ok, ok.... now to have the Flug Werk's Fw190A8 doing the same maneuver :shock: :shock: don't you reckon Barlow?
No problem whatsoever.... I'm a bit honored actually (right word for it?) ;) As long as other enthusiasts are able to enjoy videos like this be my guest.

I wish I was there myself :cry:

Here's the Link btw if you're interested m8:

Whoa! superb reactions! Recognition at last! Gheheh... No offence ww2-forummers ;) ;)! It's just that when I show this particular footage (and more) shot at Duxford to friends or even my wife i'ts always "yep whatever" and when I defend my enthusiasm and opinion about these superb aircraft I get remarks like "It's just another plane like so many....." ehm... say WHAT!?! :shock:

love my wife to death!! (in case she gets her eyes on this particular post what I find to be highly unlikely haha :) )

P.S. in case of any spellingfaults my apologies... the spell check didn't work.
Yep and its still going strong over there m8 (Just replied myself to another post), plus I've noticed its been download 89 times now already 8) But its a great piece of footage m8 that should be seen by a greater audience ( not the trash we get here ;) ) 8)
I think the mk XIV had a max level speed of 450mph, and in that initial dive it was probably moving along at close to 500mph. This mk of Spitfire had quite a climb rate as well, probably approaching 5-6000ft per minute. A great fighter, probably just as good in a dogfight as a Seafury.

The downside to all the spitfires is that they weren't well suited to ground attack, as the Brits found out very well during the 1950s war in Malaya.
