Here are a few short "Spitfire" clips!
The first is a very low pass by Ray Hanna, flying over the head of Alain De Cadenet,  (ex LeMans racing driver)

This second one is a MkXIX phot reconisence which has the 36 litre Griffon engine. This plane belongs to an ex client of mine;Christoph Jacquard. When I visited the hanger many years ago I got to fulfill a boyhood dream of sitting in the cockpit of this plane. He also owns a Sea Fury; which has an amazing 18cyl radial engine.

Unfortunately back in 2017, His Spitfire was being piloted for the first time by a different pilot and had an accident on take off. The good news is that it has been fully restored and is apparently flying again!
 

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

here's a better video of the MK XIX without the music overlay; just the beautiful sound of that Griffon motor.

AWESOME Videos.
The P.R. Spit is probably the best one to have if owned privately IMO. You can't arm them anyway so the extra fuel tankage give a massive range increase!

I can’t wait for Airventure Oshkosh this year.  Here are a couple of photos I had handy of the A10 and the B1.
