    Lyneham, Wiltshire.

    A flight to nowhere! Specialist equipment for training air crews in the RAF (R.A.F. Royal Air Force) is ten times cheaper than being trained in the air. M/S interior of a jet cockpit, with the pilot at the controls. The throttle is pushed forward. C/U shot of the pilots face, with handlebar moustache. M/S exterior of simulator cabin on its rocking platform, with shots of the rollers, a huge swath of wires, and the huge rocker arm.

    A man operates the bank of controls inside the cabin, and the camera pans across the various meters and dials. A man works at a bank of electrical equipment, where there are some good shots of blocks of transistors and wiring and banks of valves. Some officers -typical RAF officer types with moustaches are seen taking part in a briefing session, one points to a map on the wall.

    Cuts exist - see other record.
