Nice to see the allied pilots who did so much but got very little recognition for it at the time...not so many of these guys left now....but they put a lot of today's younger generation to shame.

Wow even though I am English and this stuff is fed to us from school and upwards, I never knew we had czeck pilots flying for us in the war. Great to see an old pilot reunited with his first love :) and great to see English engineering at its best that a machine of this age can still fly :)

#6 My friend's brother-in-law makes more than that offline. He's been laid off for 4 months and last month his profit was 20505.01 only working from home for 4 hours a day. How? Doing your mum.
