    Spitfire Clock


    Bored sitting at home with a dodgy knee so I am watching 1939 RAF training film on the maintenance of a MK1 Spitfire (as you do)
    There was a nice close up of a Smiths 8 day clock being set by the instrument tech.
    Quite an interesting film if you are a saddo like me!

    +1 thanks for the links, love programmes like this. I have a Spitfire technical flight manual which I really enjoy reading from time to time just in case I ever have the opportunity to actually fly the single seater version

    By happy coincidence I've just watched a spit do a couple of barrel rolls from my living room window!
