Subject: [Leica] For Ted and other WWII aircraft nuts

As I said the other day I am trawling through the photos I took over the 
I have reached those that I took at the Goodwood Revival.

For those who don't know. The Revival is a recreation of the Goodwood motor 
racing circuit in Sussex where members dress in the costume of the period 
(1948-66)when the circuit was active.

It was ALSO RAF Westhampnet diring the war...the infield was the airstrip; 
the infield becomes a recreation of the aerodrome.


But we also get the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight fly over on two or 
occasions over the weekend:

1 Spit, 1 Hurricane and "City of Lincoln", the last flying Lancaster. I make 
apologies for the cropping; it was the view agionast the lar=te afternoon 
as the flew off.

But here they are coming at you:

A Spit:

This last I cannot claim to be anything like good. However the plane is 
to be the ORIGINAL Spitfire prototype.

I am posting these for interest; if you like them so much the better...

PS I will get round to putting the others of the Revival up soon.
