      This is in time for Veterans Day, and if you don't want to watch or don't have a connection on line to support a video, save and watch it someplace that does.  There are lots of scenes flown over the Rhine by this pilot in an unarmed plane.   Some grandkids of the the flight surgeon who made home movies in England during the war saved the reels in a suitcase.  The grandsons and nephews made this story for us to see.

      Subject: spitfire footage

      You guys are going to love this footage.  Wait until you have about 14 minutes for this great flying story as well.  The pilot survives and walks away from the crash and does not get reunited with the film and the sons and grandsons of the fellow who took the pictures for many decades.  

      Great  WW II story!
