"Spitfires come out to play." Wanaka Travelogue by kiwi
Wanaka Travel Guide: 114 reviews and 355 photos
Not everyone has a couple of WWII Spitfires in their hangar to play with on a sunny day :-)
Sir Tim Wallis is the proud owner although a subsequent mishap has left him unable to fly himself again. He is still very passionate about his collection and an inspiration to so many people.
OK, ready to go, Tally HO!!!
Spitfires can turn on quite a speed when they are wound up. And nothing compares to the lovely sound of the Merlin engines rumbling as they go by!
Oh they love to frolick in the sky, and they are beautiful to watch!
