  1. What a marvelous adventure. Every aircraft has its own story, makes you wish they could talk. Did you notice how all of the propeller blades are posed precisely the same! Neat attention to detail.

    • David @adamcda13 - I did. And the lighting effects are totally cool. I am fortunate to have visited this museum twice over the years on travels to the UK, and never saw an exhibit anywhere near this spectacular. A car enthusiast friend sent me the link.

  2. Thanks for sharing this article, Eric @eb801
    Added to the list of places still to be visited.
    I saw PL983 at the Flying Legends in 2019, a great aircraft.
    Unfortunately on August 22nd of that same year it had to belly land because one of the legs did not deploy fully.

    • I probably saw that very Spit as well but was unaware of its history when I attended the Legends Battle of Britain extravaganza about 16 years ago or longer. Too many air shows. Memory cache almost full. But I was blown away by it all and it was worth flying from SF to London just for that one day alone.

  3. This is a really amazing article, Eric!
    Have been to Duxford once, almost 30 years ago.
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Spitfirepalooza!

  5. Thanks for sharing it here Eric. I never had, and probably will never have, the chance of seeing such vast and mint condition collection of Spits as this one

  6. Oh my... Great!

  7. Very nice Eric!
    It's like having all the girls you fancy together in the same room - or a room full of movie stars!
    I would be able to spend all day at this exhibit, maybe multiple visits.
