Here's a fun video for all you aviation nuts. The star of the clip is a Sopwith Camel, but about two-thirds of the way through, it flies lead in echelon with a Spitfire (Mk IX, I'm fairly sure).

It's rare to get a top-down planform view of a warplane in flight, rarer still for that aircraft to be a classic like a Spitfire. It's a perspective you usually only get in flight sims. Enjoy.

OK-- so we have established that there are "plane people" and then there's everybody else.

I swear, the moment when that SPit first entered the frame and pulled into formation, I was weeping and smiling.

Pretty damned cool.
