Spitfire Flypast of Hursley House

As a mark of respect for a member of the original Spitfire design team who passed away recently, the Spitfire Society arranged a flypast of Hursley House on Friday 8th December.

Spitfire Flypast at Hursley, UK – Google Video

I forgot my camera, so my phone stood in. The video quality isn’t great, but it does give some sense of the event. There were plenty of photographers out on the lawn, so I’m sure Flickr will soon be flooded with photos from the event.

Hursley was where the Spitfire engines were developed – long before IBM got there.

  1. “Hursley was where the Spitfire engines were developed”!!!!!!!
    The engines were by Rolls Royce.

    I am perhaps one of the last aerodynamicists who worked on the Spirfire, although in its later years.
