Disused RAF training facility and a Spitfire
Disused RAF training facility and a Spitfire
What can I say? I only stopped to take a picture for my own records of this training dome (a forerunner of today's flight simulators) as a result of Mike Williams' first Geograph of this architectural relic. At first I assumed the plane that flew into focus of my first picture taken of the dome was an RAF training plane but the aircraft's distinctive profile suggested it looked remarkably like a Spitfire.

Indeed, that's what it turned out to be. There was a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight taking place from nearby Pembrey airfield just as I was passing and happened to stop to take my picture.

What a lovely looking and agile aircraft the Spitfire was!
