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.

The first reminded me of a girlfriend,whose father flew Washingtons & had a photo' on his wall of the one he was flying in the coronation revue at Odiham.

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
