Spit­fires reach for the sky again

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

THERE is lit­tle on four wheels that can match the beauty and heart-thump­ing thrill of a Su­per­ma­rine Spit­fire.

Mark­ing its 75th year, a dozen or more will fly over Good­wood’s 2011 (car) Re­vival meet­ing, which runs from Septem­ber 16 to 18.

Good­wood’s aero­drome, RAF Westhamp­nett, was a Battle of Bri­tain base. Dur­ing the war, car­pen­ters on the Good­wood Es­tate helped to make the Spit­fire’s wooden pro­pel­lers, us­ing trees felled in the forests.
