    Saw some of that on the local news today here in Oz, makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
    Back in the late 50's early 60's my stepdad had a pig farm not far from Biggin Hill. There were at that time one Hurricane and One Spitfire outside the airfield on display. Wonder if they are still there.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Today when the Vets look at Britain I bet they wonder if the Sacrifice was worth it.
    Good to see many are still with us, average age 95.
    Cheers to them
