Spitfire in the Sky

Today as we were sitting on the towpath enjoying the sunshine we had a Spitfire circle over us, but unfortunately it was too far away for a photo, but great to hear that Merlin engine whining away in the blue skies. We did see it dive down behind some low hills to the west of us, and we also heard jet engines from about the same place later on. Having checked on the internet this was all coming from Bruntingthorpe aerodrome, which was having one of it’s two annual open days of cold war jet aircraft, where any aircraft that are serviceable will carry out full power taxi runs along their main runway. Hence a visit and presumably a flying display by the Spitfire. Thinking about it he was probably circling over us as he had arrived too early and had to kill some time.
