Full size Spitfire clip

Post  Ivanhoe on Tue Feb 14, 2012 1:24 pm

This is one of my favourite YouTube clips, How to NOT film the opening of a programme about the Spitfire!

WARNING! If you are offended by strong language (Excusable in this case!) do not watch!

It's an example of superb pilot skill, they probably asked for a low pass, and they got one!

If by "Land" you mean "Lanc" it's the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, that's where this Hurricane is from.

I'm fairly sure that Huri is a guy who flies out of Duxford and buzzes our strip during the summer he's a proper nutcase.
I'm not sure about the Spit Vid though, the shadow disappears in a couple of frames.

Whether it's real or not.

It seems out of the same 'box' as the aerobat the lands with one wing Vid which is definately fake
but where Bill Hemple simulates the same but in real life.

Oh yes, it's real, the shocked response of the filmcrew off camera prove that to me if nothing else! also, you can hear the aircraft in the distance while he's talking his intro, just after he asks if they are live.
