The Surprise

I met a man who was in World War II. He is 89 years old (as old as my grandfather would be) and is the last surviving test pilots for the SPITFIRE airplane. If you know British Air Force history, you have heard of the Spitfire.

On the right are two photos. One of Peter Ayerst, Stacey and I and the other of a Spitfire plane. He was a fascinating man with a book written about him called Spirit of the Blue, by Hugh Thomas - which Peter signed for Joe. What an amazing man and story. We were very lucky to meet him!
