When your moment of glory is also your last: the poignant story of a small-town pilot flying the legendary plane.
As a young boy in World War II, Gilbert Delcon refused to seek shelter when the air raid sirens went off over his village in Belgium. Enthralled by the sleek lines of the Spitfires, he ran outside to watch the planes pass overhead. Ten years later, he sought to fulfil his dream of one day flying a ‘Spit’. But how reliable were these ageing machines, which the Belgian airforce had purchased from the RAF?
