Default WWII pilot shown footage of his own Spitfire

WWII pilot gets shown footage of his 1944 Spitfire crash that he's never seen until now. [VIDEO]

Didn't know where to put this. I figured you guys would probably enjoy it.

Congrats to the crew for putting that together.
I can't imagine the trip down memory lane that old warrior must have had!

I learned something new. I had no idea that there was a long range recon version of the Spitfire and I also had no idea that we had them in our inventory.

No guns, no escorts and 30 minutes over Berlin. HOLY CRAP. You Sir have my deepest gratitude.
