I know much of the History Channel stuff is hooey, but this looked like it had some excellent footage and focused on the Spit.

(9:00 p.m. EST)

Just an FYI

Its a small, two-seater sports coupe /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

Yeah, the sound of Merlin was just fine. Hearing the veterans talk in all humility makes it easy to relate the experience. History Channel did a very good job.
