A US Army Air Force surgeon took many feet of 16mm film while in the UK. In 2005 his grandson tracks down a pilot that is filmed landing Spitfire 944 with the landing gear retracted.

I came expecting a 944-engined Spitfire. Surprisingly not disappointed.

Watching that vet come alive when he realized what he was watching was amazing.
