Thanks for the heads up, set the box to record, if you have Netflix I recommend Watching Danger Close itís a true story of Australian troops in Vietnam.

Worth it for the final shots of Max Gainza enjoying some lazy turns in his Spitfire over a very English countryside. Excellent photography by John Dibbs and company..
