It must have been a real challenge for the pilot in that video to keep the Spit in the air. Still a beautiful aircraft.

But I still have a fondness for the Camel as well.

You have to admire the Spifire pilot. By the look of his aircraft's attitude he must have been flying it right on stall speed so that the Camel could keep up!
