Episode 17: Doug Hamilton flying the Spitfire

Temora's Spitfire Mk VIII

We caught up with Doug Hamilton during the RAAF Pilgrimage event at RAAF Pt Cook where he was flying the Temora Aviation Museum‘s Spitfire Mk VIII. He also flies their Spitfire Mk XVI and their Lockheed Hudson as well as his own T6 Harvard (aka T6 Texan) and Lockheed 12.

During our chat we compare a number of aircraft including the Lockheed Hudson, Lockheed 12, Spitfire Mk VIII, Spitfire Mk XVI, P40, Harvard and P51. He also lets us in on the secret of how they figure out who gets to fly the Hudson vs the Spitfire.
