    Spitfire W3579 OU:O footage

    There is movie (VCR) footage showing a 485 Sqn Spitfire Vb W3579:O "Southland II" in the tide on the French coast after being forced down due to flak damage while being flown by Wg Cdr E N Ryder.

    Does anyone know the title(s) of the film and is it still available?

      Wonder if it is still there waiting to be discovered?

        Sadly, it appears not, as can be seen by this photo of the same aircraft apparently recovered, from the 'Aircrew Remembered' website -

          Wow, twelve years to get a response to the question! That could be some kind of record.
