Battle of Britain replay in Little Wood Oxon
The messerschmitt was a faster plane than the spitfire, but the latter was more manoeuvrable which was in the end decisive. Mick Campbell watched a large dragonfly [messerschmitt] chasing iris [spitfire] over the Little Wood territory. It looked as if the small iris population in this wood was about to be reduced by one. Suddenly, iris turned, did a rapid tight loop over the dragonfly, ending up on his tail, and chased him off!. Very impressive.
