Hope those guns aren't loaded! Another picture of the Spitfire flying towards the crowd taken during its flying display. Spitfires were first designed in 1934, and were produced in many variants right through the war and up to 1948.

Use the controller below to listen to the rumble of the Spitfire's engine as it flies over (this requires Quicktime).
