    Let me start a flame war here, and say nothing can beat a Spitfire in the "most beautiful plane ever built" category...

    We stay next to the AFB so we see a lot of it in the week before. The one thing i hate is the bloody Vampire. Hell that thing makes one hell of a noise.
    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    Yip.Belongs to Menno Parsons. He has a toy-box full of aeries and flies all of them.

    Here he is in Botswana, Matsieng, flying his Bell 407.
