    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?

    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 :) )


    laterz...

    P.S. in case of any spellingfaults my apologies... the spell check didn't work.

    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.
