At last, a Spitfire

I have tried for years to capture the sound of a Spitfire in flight. Each met with failure.

Cancelled flights, faulty recording equipment (human error (stupidity) actually). And then there was the one time I was certain to get it and was all poised to record. Just as the plane came into view the the air show PA system blasted out the theme from 633 Squadron drowning out the Spitfire and deafening half the crowd.

But today patience finally paid off and under a cloudless sky the most wonderful sound filled the Norwich air.

Four passes right over my head. Hairs standing up, tingles down the spine.

I truly think that this is the most wonderful sound I have ever captured.
