Tthere is no doubt that Charlie March (or Richmond as I guess we must call him these days) knows how to pull in the punters. I visited the Goodwood Revival at the weekend for the first time in a long while - what a great event it is. And there are some luscious aircraft as well as racing cars over which to drool. Below is one of my all time favourites. Those who flew the black ones on SOE missions, were amongst the bravest, and most skillful of Allied aircrew, in my opinion.
