Sopwith Camel and Spitfire flying in formation

Everyone's probably seen this but it what a beast the Camel was. 100-150hp, no brakes and no throttle on the Gnome engines, the whole engine revolving. Love to stand near one of those fired up. To see it flying with the Spitfire, well....

Quick! Untie us before they realise you're not a God, you're just an American. (From that film!)
