    North Weald orientation

    The first four pictures from North Weald are on the Hangar 2 Apron facing south or west.

    The next picture is taken from the area by Hangar 4A (Gnats) looking across towards the Squadron. The revetment is just visible on the left of the shot. The silo at Weald Hall Farm is visible on aerial views we have from the 1970s. The three storey structure on the right was later demolished. There is a view of it on a picture of Norwegian armourers working on a Spitfire IX.



    The last picture is taken facing north and shows the corner of the taxiway. It is facing roughly where Hangar 11 now stands. The hedge was not a high as it is now.

    Thanks for the link to the Viv Bellamy article, what a terrific read. The dodgy Canadian Hurricane flight experience sounds nightmarish, and gives a good insight into the potential hazards of flying aircraft with a sketchy restoration background. It also seems the B-25 was able to hold its own in a dogfight!

    LINK >>> Here's another video of the filmset in Spain etc.

    Posted by a Spanish enthusiast judging by the YouTube site intro and Spanish subtitles.
    The date on the introduction 1960 is clearly wrong Guy Hamilton says "25 years ago".
    1940 + 25 = 1965. I don't know if the film-set shown in this video was up and running as early as 1965.
    All I know is I departed Tablada along with three He111 and 27 Buchon aircraft by mid 1968 when
    filming in Spain ended.
