    Thanks for that, resulted in a 2 hour youtube session, hunting down low level flypasts and spitfire displays!

    In 1995 I was playing a game of golf in Tonbridge when I heard a noise of engines....and two Spitfires in a close formation suddenly passed not higher than 100 m over my head.
    An amazing sight that I will never forget.

    Nice video Readie.

    Does anyone know how close a display pilot takes a plane like a Spitfire to the red line, are they using full power or is it limited for safety and engine life?
