After an epic round the globe flight the Silver Spitfire landed safely back at Goodwood earlier after not attracting am awful lot of publicity, it seems to me, during its 4 month trip. Anyway congratulations to all involved and its grand to see the merlin engine can still perform so well.

I did toy with going to Dover to see it fly over but don’t really have the time at present and it could have been a wasted trip as the Spit was fog bound at Lelystad for a while. I kept tabs on flight tracker and as it was at over 5,000′ heading for the channel it seemed unlikely a decent snap was in the offing so I stayed in Ramsgate. I did pop up to the cliff as it was approaching my lunch break when it was arriving over the UK but didn’t get a sight of it.
