    Some great stuff there, maybe the only film of the Procktuka, Rapide nosing over at Woburn, the replica Avro 504 ( which ended up in the trees at Old Rhinebeck a few years ago)
    Well worth a watch !

        Brilliant - some other interesting types in there too, the Moynet Jupiter and the Riviera flying boat at the French event. And what carefree days they seemed...

          What a superb film. Some very rare footage particularly of the DH86. It crashed at Madrid and was I believe broken up there by the airport authorities with a bull dozer in 1958. It doesn't seem that badly damaged. What a shame the last surviving example too.
          I wasn't aware that the Hampshire Aeroplane Club had a Avro Anson.
          I note some of the footage taken at Baginton, Spit G-AIDN, Jungmeister and Trener Master, single seater. Probably Kings Cup and Lockheed aerobatic trophy. Note the Miles Sparrowjet G-ADNL taxying by.
          I guess the Currie Wot on floats was not a great idea. Seemed to be having trouble getting airborne, to much wash and not enough power.
          Thanks for sharing this great film

              That Gold Mustang looked interesting at 2.43.

                  Ah memories! That might be me lying on the grass watching the planes! A quick glimpse of a Q.6 adn the FD.2 there. Surprised that there was not a lot of Eastleigh photos, but just enough. I wonder if modern technology could 'clean up' the film? Interesting to see CZP in two different colour schemes. I wonder who the lady pilot of CZP was? Maybe the inflight film of CZP could be on its last flight? Very sad to see CZP lying, dying at Madrid, possibly the only pictures of its demise. 'Anson' IUS was a Consul which was cancelled in 1959, not sure where that accident occurred. Quick glimpses of John Isaccs and Ray Hillborne and the XROE-1 flying. Well worth the half hour of your time watching this, thanks!

                    Have still got a lot of reels to go through. Just going to take a lot of time and then get Rod to verify everything. Have had to take out all the personal family parts of course and then have missed the odd jem along the way, Just takes time, but will slowly get there. As long as its proving interesting will see if can do some more to add to this one, and the other two - the Gladiator and the BoB one.

                        Brilliant thanks for posting T6flyer, lovely to see, bit of a coincidence that I came by an operators manual for a Dh 86 the other week too.

                            Not gold but rather yellow and white. Found this on the net.

                                    Great film, oh to see IDN back in that scheme. The Avro 504 is at Blackbushe c 1964. Heartbreaking to see the damage to CZP, and how that it could have so very easily been rebuilt if handled correctly.

                                      Just added three more Bellamy films to my Youtube Channel. One featuring Joe Currie and John Isaacs, along with footage of the Hot Wot and the Bellamy-Hilborne BH-1 G-ARIO. Never ever seen before. Truly remarkable film.

                                      One a much smaller film shows Wot APNT and Chilton AFGI and the last another Wot, and the prototype Isaacs Fury ASCM, the Turboprop Auster and then more of the 504 replica and finally the Rover Chipmunk ATTS. Enjoy.

                                        Many thanks for that.
                                        EDIT It appears that the real s/n for this Aircraft is s/n 44-63871 and not 44-63865 as quote in the photo text.But as
                                        with all things Mustang especially ex IDAF examples you can't always be certain.
