Fwd: The Seafire Flies Again!

Subject: The Seafire Flies Again
The good old days. This plane flies out of the Columbia, Missouri airport. 
Seafire Restoration -- HOW COOL IS THIS?

What a thrill for this restorer when he saw his work fly for the first time since 1950. Brill iant work! The only flying one of its kind in the world!
 
The sound of this plane is incredible - nothing beats the sound of a Spitfire's Merlin Engine.  This aircraft, the Seafire, got its name from the "Sea Spitfire". The land based Spitfire was modified with a tail hook added and folding wings, so it could be flown from and onto carriers at sea.  What a project! Beautiful aircraft!
