herecalico : That was so good to see. Loved it.

Southern Brisbane Nerf Club : Into WW2 Germany, no guns, no escort. Nothing to shoot with but a camera. Biggest. Balls. Ever!

Gerald Watling : Spitfire944 is one of most interesting video's that I have seen in a long long time, and I am 90years of age, and there has been some very interesting things shown on YouTube.

William Rance : You take a young American, barely out of college, you give him a wonderful plane, tell him to fly out to Berlin, take some pictures and fly back again! Alone, and, without guns! He did all that thousands of miles from his own back yard - in someone else's domain. No amount of medals could reward that true gentleman of the skies, his honest courage and integrity shines through, his down-home American ideal a credit to himself and the American people. Great respect from a Brit.

NickRatnieks : What a great guy! " Any pilot should fly a Spitfire at least once!"

Jamie Webb : You sir, are a hero. On behalf of all of England and every other allied countries, thank you.

Pitt Brad : Hey man i couldn't stop grinning when i saw the reaction of this veteran on the footage of his belly landing! .... jesssusss over Germany without guns, this is truly a hero ..... respect, humongous respect!.

Third Dimension Jewellery : Love that expression on his face when he realizes he's watching himself! Great documentary.

SONGSTICKS : SUPERB !! I've always loved the spitfire and I used to live near Bradwell where he landed once. An old fella in Southminster my Mum knew, used to take a horse and cart loaded with vegetables from the farm to Bradwell airfield for the pilots kitchens. One day he arrived just as a spitfire was coming in all shot to pieces, glass smashed, no wing tips etc and it came in on it's belly. When the pilot got out, he marched across the field in a stiff legged way and shouted.. "The bastards nearly got me that time" It was Douglas Bader :0)

David Smart : That was one of the best videos I've ever seen on YouTube. Bravo!!! (subscribed)

Robert Hill : Lt. Col Blyth came to speak to our Cascade Warbirds group at the Historic Flight Foundation museum back in October of 2013. Great storyteller and an overall fantastic person. My group asked me to build a detailed model of his PR.XI in 1/48 scale which I did. He actually cried when I presented it to him!

SW6 : One brave man among many who helped to win the war against Nazi tyranny. Respect from a brit.

DAvenport 3-2614 : Congratulations to Lt. Col. Colonel John S. Blyth USAF on 1 MILLION YouTube views of SPITFIRE 944 since May !

cokoladka cz : how he said that sentence " i always flew unarmed....and alone...." respect sir !

John C Gibson : Spitfire in Blue looks hot.

Bill Cassidy : Those guys really were the greatest generation.  I'm so glad you found him so he could see this.

Diver6106 : Great for an old veteran to see his contributions appreciated. But it never mentioned the unit he flew with? My dad did photo recon with the 25th BG flying Mosquitos. A lot of people don't know that U.S. pilots flew Mosquitos either. Yah, recon was striped down unarmed planes flying fast and low.

Balu : I love how you can still see a hint of the young man's smile as soon as he sees himself.

smokes knight77 : Truly a remarkable story, and a remarkable gentleman! As a Brit I salute you sir and thank you for your service

Hacksaw Jim Duggan : Spitfire and Mosquito, what fantastic planes they are.

Carmel Pule' : I was born in Malta and I knew the war as a child. I owe my life to people like this gentleman as many more do. The year is 2016, It is late, but , Sir, I salute you, and thank you

Andy M : 643 people don't like it?? Are those North Korean viewers?

Ned Friedman : This video is AMAZING. I am fascinated with WWII history so this is so cool. Ironically, General Dixon is my great grandfather, I am so glad I found this video. 

Gigagannet : "Any pilot should fly a Spitfire at least once" What a fantastic documentary. Brilliant. Well Done!!

Mark Horton : The best Youtube video I have seen in a long time.

Sgt Steel : 13:43 that was the sweetest Aeroplane, any pilot should fly a Spitfire at least once!! Loved that bit

mistral55 : Heartwarming.. Top respect from the UK sir.. :)

megatwingo : Very interesting and moving. Thumbs up from Germany!

Unctious : So damn COOL!!! God bless the generation that won that horrible war. Dunno if folks nowadays would be up to the challenge.

Gary Tarr : Excellent video . Thanks to the few American pilots who flew with no guns and no escorts . Luckily he was flying the best aircraft ever built. It proves to some American deniers ( Wilbur Finnigan ; Mark Park et al ) that Spitfires DID fly to Berlin and back !!!!

Martin Padfield : So much to admire here; the pilot's incredible detailed memory and obvious professionalism. But what blows me away - he was 18. EIGHTEEN for Petes sake. Great documentary - deserves to do really well. 

Tony W : I wish I could think of something appropriate to say after watching this astonishing film, but it leaves me totally speechless. Thank you Col. Blyth and all those of The Greatest Generation who served with you. You have my undying admiration.

otterspocket2 : "Every pilot should fly a Spitfire at least once". I think every pilot agrees with him, but sadly...

RC Enduros : Excellent video! I didn't know they flew those unarmed missions in spitfires either.   Blyth is one hell of a flyer

AussieAlex : That pilot has balls to do that without guns or bullet-proof glass. The spitfire was a real marvel for it's time, probably kept him alive. Good man with a kind heart it seems.

Gary Tarr : WOW , Now over 2 million views , congratulations , wonderful video show . Particularly love Colonel Blyth's comment "every pilot should fly a Spitfire once" Great man and a great hero .

Mark Eckert : It's great when you find a real gem like this video shinning brightly amid all the vacuous nonsense of modern life. Thanks for posting.

hoogmonster : Nicest thing I've seen all day...respect.

robert hoagland : Now THAT was the best thing I've seen on youtube, period

Cinnamanster A : "Any pilot should fly a Spitfire at least once." Yeah! What he said! Lets do that!

Fredster 007 : Excellent documentary, very moving...Those were brave young men that saved us from tyranny, and kept us free!They are now passing on one by one...I sure hope we can come up with more like them.

RCflyingfun : Awesome job, I am so glad that people are now taking the time to honor these veterans. To Mr. Blythe, Thank You for your service.

bobdixon : What a guy! Wonderful documentary... thanks for posting. Amazing story.

Anthony Groucutt : Well that was really Fantastic .just love that footage .and the story really well Done Im now 76 and have lots of RAF books on WW2 Fighter Pilots . I really appreciate that Story and film footage

Jason Jones : Great film- I live in Astoria Oregon and bumped into a gentleman charging his Tesla Model S so I decided to strike up a conversation with him. After about 20 minutes we got onto the subject of his dad after the gentleman saw I had an SR-71 sticker on my truck. He continued to tell me about his father and how he did these missions and then he says to watch this documentary. I did and I love it. I hope to bump into Scott again one day and further our discussion. BTW, when I saw Mr. Blythe I couldnt believe how similar he and his son look.

adriancarabajal : Excellent job, you must be very proud!!, I saw the face of that gentleman when you show him the movie and his eyes lighted up!

Robert Goodin : There are brave men and women in the armed forces that we never hear about. Here is one that I can only described as "Hero". thank you for helping save the entire world from evil.

Carlos Reyes : Inspirational! brought both a smile and a few tears after watching. Well done boys!

Jack French : Congrats to one of our True American heroes!

moyadapne : I'll never understand human nature...595 dislikes. My father flew Spits in the Middle East and Burma. Loved his Q for Queenie.
