A damaged B-17 returns to Rougham with a RAF Spitfire on the wing for moral support. It could almost be 1943.

Anything with a Spitfire in it should get extra stars. The older Spits with the better curves (the pre-Griffin models, in the main) just adds class to a photograph and does credit to whomever raises a camera to them. For a killing machine, the Spitfire was also a thing of beauty, right down to the Merlin's engine note, gutsy with a touch of honey. Beautiful machine in every way.

Goering: "What do you need to win this battle against the British?"
Galland: "A squadron of Spitfires."

Top marks for the 1943 monochroming treatment, take the colours away and you focus on the shapes all the more.

PS. I'll let you in on a little secret. I like Spitfires.
