This may have already been posted. I walked into the 'study' and found Mr Tiff watching this. Needless to say I demanded a link!

Wowza! Beautiful footage!
That camel looks like a real wild thing!! :wavemachine:
It's amazing to see those two birds flying together. I had no idea any airworthy Camels remained! Legend. Thanks for posting this, Tiff. Love his pronounciation of "Douglas Bade-urr" at the end, lol.

That is stunning, Tiff! Thank you (and Mr. Tiff) for sharing.

For a minute there I was a little worried that the propeller spinning guy was going to have his head sheared off.

The Camel looked so tiny compared to the Spitfire too!

I see our other halves appear to be interested in this sort of thing too. Excellent footage, thanks to Mr Tiff for finding it.

Bit like him and me sometimes! :lol:
He's been watching Jay Leno and his cars. I was alerted by the sound of a different engine.

Found the original posting after a good long search. 299 times 'Sopwith' is mentioned on the forum. I am so glad Soppy's user name is one entire word!

Thanks to TS for posting it originally, back in 2013
