Spitfire pilots return to Goodwood after round-the-world trip

Two British pilots have touched down on home soil, after flying around the world in a restored chrome Spitfire.
Steve Brooks, 58, from Burford, Oxfordshire, and Matt Jones, 45, from Exeter, took four months to circumnavigate the globe in the first trip of its kind in a Spitfire.
They stopped off in 100 locations, across 30 countries.
The project, called Silver Spitfire - The Longest Flight, started and finished at Goodwood Aerodrome, the base of Boultbee Flight Academy, the first-ever school for Spitfire pilots, in West Sussex.
