Thanks for that; brings back a lot of memories. Sad to see the footage of Britannia XL638 at the end of one film.

Little Aden: was there ever a location with such a frightful stink of oil for miles around?

Kuwait, July 1961: after they closed down the well heads in preparation for an Iraqi invasion.

Historical Videos

Having watched the Catapult Ships Royal Navy Instructional Film posted by India Four Two here I've come across some more interesting films that I thought were worth sharing, and a I couldn't find an appropriate thread, so I thought I'd start one for any interesting videos.

Wing to Wing (1951)

In on the Beam (1951) - did think of posting this in the airways thread.

I have a friend whose late father flew Washingtons in the bomber role then on 192 Sqn from Watton. He is one of 3 pilots on 192 in its Washington phase mentioned in "Listening In". From linking his RAF record with information in the book it looks like his AFC was awarded for sorties to do with ELINT connected to Suez
