Silver Spitfire looks great!
A thread thrift for a more affordable Spitfire:
In reality this watch looks even better and is a nice alternative to the usual big size black-dial pilot watches

I like this not snobbish watch very much. Also with black dial.
So back to the thread, when is the flight around the world over?

In December Heinz subject to weather and reliability they hope to make it back to Goodwood for Christmas after their record breaking trip for a Spitfire.

I can well understand them having a pause before crossing the Alps. Filthy weather gloomy

The team have just landed in Lelystad Holland after what was a very challenging leg due to weather. Whilst they get stuck into a well-deserved hot cup of tea, you can enjoy two more stunning images from the last week as G-IRTY made her way over the alps, and into Germany.
