    yes, excellent video and tragic event.

    I know the feeling, trying to identify aircraft at distance was impossible at 2K - 1920 x 1080 .But when I upgraded to 4K, it was alot easier to see the straight wings of a hurricane, or up dip wings and single vent of spit or up dip wings and twin vents of a 109 .

    I usually spot the difference at pointblank range

    Of course, then you realize that "Better late than never" doesn't really hold any value for those on the receiving end of 8 303 caliber machine guns
