    Unfortunately the P51D Mustang "Big Beautiful Doll" crashed later during the day after colliding mid-air with the Skyraider with the Mustang pilot bailing out safely with no major injuries. The Skyraider landed safely with a big section of wing missing.

    A Spitfire, Mustangs and a Lancaster all in one post. Heaven!
     
  4. Love planes, all kinds especially from WW2.

    It is unfortunate when we loose them cause they just can not be replaced. Thankfully no one was died.

    Great set, sad news about crash. Is the first a type of Spitfire?

    Yes you are right Lili, it is a Spitfire, looks like a Griffon engined MK XIV or later
