Description: Spitfire number MA843 code WX*F of 302 (Polish) Squadron flies alongside the camera aircraft. After peeling away the pilot indulges in some rolls and a low pass over the airfield. There is a good shot of a landing and of a take off. Another Spitfire Mk IX of 308 (Polish) Squadron taxies and after a shot of a high pass by a Spitfire, three aircraft of the same squadron take off together, before passing high overhead.
