Hi Darryl,

Nice photos, I like looking at old war planes, I Remember about 10 years ago, a bloke fully restored a spitfire in his shed at Unley "suburb of Adelaide". I was amazed how small the spitfire was with a massive Rolls Royce engine powering it.
Pilots were pretty brave back then.
The spitfire has now been moved to the aviation museum at Port Adelaide, if you ever get the chance its well worth a visit.
cheers gmax
