    Hurricane LF363 film appearances

    BBMF's LF363 is on record as having appeared in Angels One Five and Reach for the Sky however I cannot find any details about the serial or which codes it war during these films, does anyone happen to know what they may have been?
    Push enough pixels around and it'll look like an aeroplane profile.

    Reach for the sky
    T4125 / SD-K, SD-N, SD-R, SD-W, SD-X

    Angels one five
    Apparently (from the information I have anyway) both LF363 and PZ865 were used during filming to depict the personal mount of 'Septic' wearing P2619 / US-B

    Thanks for that, it's quite easy to pick out PZ865 in Angels One Five but I didn't know that LF363 also wore the same codes, I'll go back and watch both films again armed with that information.

    I've always been led to believe that it was only PZ865 that appeared in Angels One-Five, along with the five aircraft from Portugal.

    Both did.

    Along with the Hurricane from Canada, which constituted all 3 of the worlds airworthy Hurricanes at the time.
    I was with it all the way until letting the brakes off..........

    The Tuck image was taken at Henlow on the 18th April 1968...coming up 50 years ago.

    Note the overlarge diameter of the red in the roundel, on all the aircraft, that was changed prior to filming.

    ----------

    Not from the Information I have, these were the Hurricanes used in the filming
    PZ865 (now BBMF)
    LF363 (now BBMF)
    L1591 (used for studio cockpit shots, broken up and disposed of after filming)
    L1592 (now Science Museum)
    P2617 (now Hendon)

    and the Portuguese AF examples used were,
    544
    554
    600
    601
    624
