Blazing Cat Fur
Lots of coverage, here and here to start.
Love those spitfires.
Me too, beautiful to watch.
Willy Messerschmitt and Robert Lusser should also be mentioned for their Bf 109 design which also helped when Britain needed to win through. That unforgiving shot up fighter was not the best plane to be in if you were a wounded German pilot trying to safely land back at your airfield in France.
The Spitfire wing took more man hours to build than an entire Bf 109 (less engine) and it had an odd quirk resonation that began somewhat before it reached its load limits in tight turns. This gave the Spitfire pilot a unique safety indicator that no German pilot possessed before reaching sudden wing failure territory.
Back when Britons actually cared what happened to their country.
Funny none of this is being covered by the CBC. Who would have thought that?
