Additional Information

This hour-long feast of historic aviation is based around the 1983 Great Warbirds air display organised by B17 Preservation at West Malling, Kent. 

Directed by Norman J Warren, who has many cinema feature films to his credit, the film involved two cameras and no less than three sound crews. Some nine hours of film were shot and it took five months to combine the best sequences with extracts from wartime Pathe newsreels. The linking is so subtly done that at times 1940 and 1983 action is hard to separate.

Apart from many fine flying sections, the film also covers those at the controls: Keith Sissons discusses B-17G Flying Fortress 'Sally B', Stefan Karwowski describes the thrill of riding an engine on wings, the Grumman Bearcat, and 'Dizzy' Addicott explains why the ubiquitous DC3 has earned so much affection. 

Capital Radio's airborne traffic spotter, Brian Wolfe, provides the narrative and Glenn Miller music gives an appropriate link with the era.

Filmed at the West Malling air show in 1983 and features Gary interviewing various personalities from the air display scene. This film was made a year before Gary bought his own Harvard aeroplane and took up display flying himself.
