Skyfull of Spitfires & Hurricanes
on: September 09, 2015, 07:46:19 PM
Just wondered if anyone was planning on attending the gathering of 40+ Spitfires, Hurricanes down at Goodwood on Sunday. Surely something that will never be seen again.
I've attached the link with the details.

That would be awesome, just one spitfire flying about gets my hair standing on end.
The sound of the mighty Merlin engine is just something else.

Apparently there is a possibility it may be moved to Monday if the weather is forecast to be bad on Tuesday.
