For little over a year I have been working on a documentary about Mk732, the Spitfire LF.Mk IXc of the Royal Netherlands Air Force Historical Flight.
Today I was at the Dutch Air Force Headquarters to interview Air Commodore Andre Steur. He spoke about the importance of Mk732 for the Dutch Air Force and the emotional value she represents as symbol for 70 years of freedom in The Netherlands.
After the filming was done the Commodore presented me with a great gift: a Director of Operations medal of appreaciation!
Of course I am only part of a group of over 250 volunteers, all working hard to keep our heritage flying, this medal sure made me proud!
