    Mildenhall, Suffolk.

    German flying officers at Royal Air Force (RAF) base. Various shots of party of RAF officers giving German guests tour of air field. We see the officers and guests inspecting latest RAF bombers. According to narrator both parties of officers share information about aviation and new types of aeroplane. The narrator goes on to say: "Apart from the official formality of the occasion there's an atmosphere of intimacy which we hope will make this day a memorable to our visitors".

    This is second part of German-British exchange: earlier in the year a party of British Air Force officers was entertained in Germany.

    Note: see also story titled GERMAN FLYING OFFICERS ARRIVE AT CROYDON, also in 37/84.
