Lou Cetrangelo's Spitfire

           


 

Lou Cetrangelo's Spitfre. As friend of Sal Calvagna, Sal made the arrangements to purchase the Meisterscale Spitfire Short Kit and plans for him. After about four and a half months it is finished and recently he had a chance to fly it with Sals help and encouragement. It flew great in spite of a crosswind. He wanted to take it easy on the DA-50 but he can see it will be a very fast plane. He hopes to see everyone at the Warbirds Over Delaware flyin.
