PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING - SPITFIRE
Janill Gilbert stashed this in Music
PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING's Ode to the great SPITFIRE plane
Public Service Broadcasting is a London-based pseudonymous musical duo consisting of J. Willgoose, Esq. on guitar, banjo, other stringed instruments, samplings and electronic instruments; and Wrigglesworth (love this name!) on drums, piano and electronic instruments.
They take samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material, attempting to 'teach the lessons of the past through the music of the future'.
The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries during and after the Second World War. The Spitfire was built in many variants, using several wing configurations, and was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft. It was also the only British fighter to be in continuous production throughout the war. The Spitfire continues to be a popular aircraft, with approximately 50 Spitfires being airworthy, while many more are static exhibits in aviation museums all over the world.
Brad Pitt bought one this past December. (If I had time, I'd shrink Pitt down!)
Spitfire planes were used in World War II. Pitt was inspired to purchase one after starring in the war flick 'Fury.'
The star will allegedly take flying lessons in Oxford at the Boultbee Flying Academy. Maybe he can use his new wings to get to that giant heart-shaped island Angelina Jolie supposedly bought him.
I like the big Brad Pitt pic! And I'm learning a lot about spitfire planes thanks to you Janill!
Wow, it feels like World War II was so long ago just looking at that picture!
