Over the past few years, I have enjoyed the many antics of Guy Martin, as seen on TV, where he has beaten speed records, built a canal boat and brought industrial heritage back to life. My favourite has been the reconstruction of a British icon - the Spitfire. I have had a love affair with this aircraft since my childhood, when my dad used to draw me pictures of what he had seen flying overhead when he was a youngster. Given the chance, I intend to take a flight in one before I check out.
