I tend to pass a book on once I've read it. I have kept this incredible oversized book about Spitfires, good narrative and incredible pictures and diagrams, although it was damaged in a water leak.
Currently reading Skinny Legs And All again.
Supermarine Spitfire? I've never seen one in real life, though someone across the bridge in Canada had a restored one for a while, a Spit IX. I have a digital model of that plane for FSX. I live near an airbase so I see lots of planes, and we have the air shows during the summer. Once, driving by the airport I saw a restored P-51 on the tarmac, and nearly drove the car into a drainage ditch. Was that thing ever beautiful...
