Wahoo! Is this airplane going to fly at the Chino Show Cindy? Now you've given me one more reason to feel bad that I can't make it down there!

A Griff powered Spit... !!

Is that a Griffon out of a Shackleton? I have previously only seen the Seafires with contra-rotating props (contra props are much better for the carrier wave off). Most of the Griffon Spitfires had 5 bladed Rotol props (some early Griffon examples had 4 bladed Rotols).
