Well - if you're not prepared to crash them - don't fly them.

Thanks for uploading this clip. I sat in the plane a few years ago after it had become a travelling exhibit with the Solent Sky museum. The book is a great read for anyone contemplating building their own aircraft, too!

Not if the prop was stopped in the horizontal plane beforehand!

It is a static exhibit with the Southampton Aviation Museum. p.s. the book is a good read!

The book is a wonderful read!! Mine us inscribed 'Bill, Keep flying, it's good for your health!!! Warmest regards and happy memories! Pete'. As much a legend to those that knew him as Yeager or Armstrong.

Good to hear a sensible statement on here!

Was not a real spitfire. and was not a real crash. that is called a malfunction. a minor inconvenience. The pilot walked away and after a little work the plane will fly again. Everyone keeps calling little shit a crash.

i do have one question not sure if you can answer it but i am worried i may get too tall to realise my dream and fly a spitfire what would you say was the tallest person who could fit in a spitfire?

What a shame...why was this the a/c final flight....did not look to badly damaged. Nick.

Think you should dig out the plans Clive and franchise them! A great effort!! - And a great pilot who thought the world of your efforts!!!

No the replacement prop was fine. In fact it was better that the original one fitted having a slightly larger diameter which helped with cooling the underwing coolant radiator. Afraid it was down to good lod pilot error.

Hitler, would have had you shot.

What's the future the Ducros prototype? Desperate to see this bird flying and maybe even on the airshow circuit... It's not just the older generation who want to see an early Spit back in the air, I'm only 17 and I'm sure there's many others like myself ;)

brilliant im only 5'10 at the moment but look set to get about 6'0-6'2 so i should fit awesome
Написал: Clive Ducros, 06.04.2013, 19:03

Thanks, although it is a replica, but a prototype in its own right. The Jag engine was underpowered at 365 HP but the plan was to increase it to 500 HP. Never happened as the CAA test pilot crashed it!
Написал: Clive Ducros, 17.01.2012, 12:28

Yes he was. He taught me to fly when he was at CSE Oxford, shortly after he left the UAS at Abingdon. What's OAT?

The unprofessional incompetent careless bastards they destroyed a perfectly good piece of WW2 aviation history.
Написал: D. Adam, 26.03.2013, 12:56

you place 'the war' in quotations as if you don't believe it happened. My grandfather was an RAF Lancaster Pilot and died fighting during that war. You should respect those that died to give you the freedom to be such an obtuse, uninformed jackwad

That probably upset few of the old dogs
