too cool for sunday

Post by minnie the gdoodle » 10 Sep 2013, 06:00

sunday morning stood in the garden with the wife and moo watching the world go by and we heard a throaty engine noise,not a jet and bigger than a light aircraft what is that sound says the wife ,not sure i think it may be a spitfire sure enough over the tops of the houses a spitfire flies over.we are both waving like loons and the spitty banks and flies over our house upside down.we were treated to a short aerobatic display by probably one of the best british fighters on a warm sunday morning.may seem daft but for 3 minutes it was 1939 and the spitfire was patrolling the skies again.
it makes you proud and a little bit sentimental when you get the chance to see these planes.
it should be obligitory to have under the union jack the words "these colours dont run"

I totally agree - where I used to live our road was the flight path to any even in London- and that drone is a very patriotic noise

We get most London fly pasts as they leave the capital. See it on TV, run outside and they're overhead. Makes me think of going to air shows with Mum and Dad, sun (always sunny in your childhood), sitting on the car roof to get a better view and getting to use the telescope. Aaahhhh. Memories!

Awesome, in the true sense of the word.
Last year we went to Goodwood Revival in Daisy, our 1934 Austin 10. It was a totally fantastic and unforgettable day, even if you're not a massive petrol head, because just about everybody dresses up into 40's 50's and 60's. There were air displays by spitfires, the Vulcan (?), I think there was a Brabizon (not sure) as well, but I'm not well up on my planes. Tons of classic/vintage cars and rare racing cars being thrown around the race track by the likes of Christian Horner, Rowan Atkinson, and even the jaw-droppingly gorgeous Ewan McGregor joined in on the bikes. (There isn't a smiley for me and Ewan!!!!) :lol:
Not a dog friendly day out though; Jasper and Daisy have not met :wink: But so worth it.
