    Nope I wonder why?
    633Squadron and Mosquito Squadron are very good films but incredibly unrealistic

    If you want some interesting film for your collection try this, 6hrs 20mins long double DVD with some until now unreleased footage including Beufighters of coastal command giving a convoy one hell of a paste-ing and lancs tall boying the Tirpitz and U-boat pens but there's loads of great tiffy libs, mossies stuff ect,ect all done in the chocks away style, but thats is the only draw back

    I also like, one of our aircraft is Missing with ronald coleman googie withers. and target for tonight - I like most of the films you all mentioned, however i personally prefer the documentary type factual ones best.

    Theres a few other good DVD's out now in the Royal Airforce at War series. ones already been mentioned, but the others are Called "The Unseen Films" some of the films on them are run of the mill, but there are a lot of real gems in there with great quality RARE footage!!!.
    All contain information films as listed below.

    [​IMG]

    DvD no1 - 1940
    BITS OF OUR AIRCRAFT ARE MISSING: A dramatised warning against stealing parts from crashed RAF aircraft. - (GOOD)

    DISCIPLINE AND MORALE: An explanation of the RAF command structure and why discipline is considered so vital to the effectiveness of the RAF.

    GUN TURRET DRILL (THE FRASER NASH TURRET): A detailed instruction film for front rear gunners on Wellingtons. (EXCELLENT!!)

    A FIGHTER HAS CRASHED: information film on how to rescue a pilot from a spitfire, Typhoon of Beaufighter. (EXCELLENT)

    I've got Target for Today - its first class. Theres also one called Target for Tonight, about specific raids by Bomber Command.

    Another is called "Lest we Forget" it contains veterans talking about their experiences.

    Sometimes on Rare occasions the BBC do documentaries which are also very good too!
