That made my day

I'm working away like a good little boy, and I hear a light aircraft approaching. I think to myself, "He sounds a little low" and look out the window.

Buzzing across Wellington just above the roof tops is a Spitfire.

I don't think I'll be able to get this grin off my face for a while :-) Such a beautiful machine, such a wonderful noise!
