Suffering from the latter stages of Alzheimers Frank “Winkle” Brown is a retired test pilot and World War Two veteran approaching his century year.When 36 pristine Spitfires are discovered buried deep within the Burmese jungle he gets a surprise visit from Grant Global Industries, with a most intriguing proposition.Authors note:In 1987 an amateur pilot, Mathias Rust (18 years old) flew his Cessna F172 through Soviet air denfense during the height of the cold war. Successfully touched down his tiny aircraft in Moscows Red Square.Imagine what a seasoned fighter pilot could achieve. South American drug runners out fox US coast guards all the time, land in Floridas lush golf courses at night.Ask yourself a question could a highly trained Spitfire veteran dog-fight his way passed MiG-29s?Did you know modern frontline heat-seeking missiles wont lock-on to a low emission piston engine. Most air-to-air engagements take place over 25 miles away, ruling out the need for cannon ammunition to be loaded (some Eurofighter Typhoons actual have their guns removed).I did a lot of research (old vs new). The Spitfire is a weapon not a weapons delivery platform like todays fighter planes. Modern jets stall at around 120mph a Spitfire is still effective at speeds below 80mph.Youll be surprised what shes capable of in the right hands.
