Just finished watching this video about Captain Eric Winkle Brown, a most fascinating documentary about a remarkable pilot. Not sure if this has been posted before, but it's definitely worth a viewing. He is referred to as the greatest pilot Britain has ever produced, not sure how true that is but certainly he was someone special.

It's a BBC doc so expect great quality!
