    I do believe that is Bovington. Here are a few more, hopefully from the same location. And yes, the cameraman had something to do with the film as was one of the Spitfire pilots.

      The film as not shown before may be valuable, as the stills may also be. I would have put a copyright across them.

          Hi Martin,

          Thank you for showing the film at Bodmin on Saturday. Not just the BoB stuff, I rather liked the Jet Wot and HAeC stuff too! G-AIDN looked much better in civvy colours.

            The landing Spitfires, Heinkel and Buchons are all at Duxford. See you have found my Flickr albums!

            Suppose should have put a copyright mark on each one, but least we will know where we saw them the first time. Will look into doing that with future screenshots.

                That is Jeff Hawke ( seated) , taking a break from flying the B25 cameraship.

                At a guess, I would say Duxford, given the painting of the buildings and blast tape on the windows. Possibly North Weald, but not Bovingdon I think, as that did not feature in ground shots, apart from the smoking Heinkel descending over a huge, painted London skyline billboard.

                  All but one (the dummy pilot on the wing is at Bovingdon), the rest are taken at Duxford. When the camera pans around, its weird not to see the M11....

                    Spitfire CD-H is P7350. Not sure which of the two Mk.XIXs is in the other shot.

                      Brilliant footage/pictures. The dummy pilot on the wing of the Buchon must have been left on the films cutting room floor because i don`t recall any scene in the film where a Buchon pilot is seen baling out.

                        Me neither.

                        It could be that the system was not effective of the shot not convincing enough, of course, but it definitely worked well enough with a Spitfire.

                          The Mk XIX is PS853 at DX circa July 1968.

                          Note the cabin blower on the port engine cowling of PS853...not fitted on PM631.

                            I recently built the Airfix Spitfire Mk.XIX kit (1/72) as PS853, and never thought of the air intake on the cowling being there or not!

                              Some of my colour slides from six weeks at Tablada Spanish airbase in the spring of 1968.

                                Brilliant stuff ! Welcome to the forum Sim. This B of B material is greatly appreciated here.

                                That is a really atmospheric shot, and I have not seen any quite like it. Probably Connie Edwards in one of the cowboy hats, and John Blake ( wartime injury to arm) hosting the briefing.

                                Any more you can share ?

                                  Connie's the one on the right.

                                    Simon,

                                    I doubt there has been a finer opening post during the lifetime of this forum.

                                    Nice to see them again since I tidied them up for DavidL.

                                    Thank you for posting.

                                    Mark

                                      I love the colour scheme on the B25. I am assuming the red and green are for port and starboard to help with quick identification and positioning for pilots - particularly in the scenes of massive mayhem, when brief glances at all that can be afforded at best?

                                      I showed the film to my 3 year old the afternoon before his first Flying Legends airshow earlier this year. He is now fascinated by any aircraft with "windmills" on the front...
