Hi Guys,
I happen to be on holiday in the village where Sqd Ldr Geoffrey Wellum lived. His funeral was today and had a Spitfire flypast.

I sat at RNAS Culdrose and saw the Spitfire coming back in to land after the Flypast.

If you want HiRes of the Pics I can send them to you.

Indeed - what else can you say.

So much of the wars passing more and more into history with last survivors leaving us.

Happy Modelling
