"Heartbreakingly" beautiful aircraft, especially against the uncluttered sea below. All it really needs now is some music.

Be at a display where there's a Merlin Spitfire flying - your soul will thank you for it.

This photo deserves 5 stars because a good picture quality is maintained and its a extremely difficult shot of a magnific flying bird that changed had changed the course of history of the world war 2,two thumbs up for this photo.

The only thing missing is the loud roar of the Merlin engine, and a "Tally Ho" from the pilot !!
