Paul Jansen flies a Spitfire plane

By Paul Jansen

I flew a Spitfire. For a very long time, this was all I could say of the climax of the course I did at the world’s only school for Spitfire pilots. Each time I tried to describe the experience, I found myself grasping for words.

This, finally, is my report on how I had The Perfect Moment.
