    Watched it today, has it's moments but how did they survive the war with all that pipe-smoking. Some jiggery pokery as they interweave stock footage of BB vintage with gals and chaps pretending to gawp at Spitfires etc zooming about. There's one puzzling sequence where a Spitfire zooms around in the kind of manner that sprog in the BoB movie got caned for. It emits puffs of dirty smoke every now and again then he comes back down and goes straight into an inverted pass, thought he was about to do a bunt but rolled out of it. Nice footage of Wimpeys, a Hurri with ferry tanks, various Spits, Ansons, Hudson (?). Then this guy gets into a Whitley after telling this other chap he'd never flown one before... almost believable.

    Royzee617,
    The scene of which you speak with the Spitfire zooming around, etc., is actual footage of Alex Henshaw, Supermarines Chief Test Pilot putting on one of his displays which were usually for dignitaries, etc. during the war. He gives a good account of those displays in his book, "Sigh for a Merlin" which is quite a good read. Sometimes I wonder how he survived his occupation!

    There's a documentary about the women ferry pilots in GB during the war and one of the ladies mentioned flying a new type for the first time. She said that all they did was sit in the plane with the manual to get things figured out and then off they went, manual in hand.
    There were many brave [and adventurous] women on both sides of the Atlantic that ferried everything from trainers to bombers and some lost their lives doing it.

    I don't have this movie(s) , but if it is the one I have seen my cousin is in it. He is called 'Alabam'. He was a Ferry Pilot in WWII even though he was from Alabama. May I ask, is the movie available. If so, where do I get the movie?

    Thank you for you time.

    The film I have it is 895 Megs and is around 1H14 Min. I check it maybe at the end it seem to be not
    correct. I saw somewhere that it is 1H.20Min but the one I have is lower..
