• Short Summary

    An RAF flying club has formed to fly Tiger Moths.

  • Description

    Upwood, Huntingdonshire.

    Some RAF airmen have set up a Flying club. Sequence includes shots of red Tiger Moth aircraft . M/S air to air shots of the classic fifties aircraft, the Canberra light bomber, flying in formation. Bombers fly low over camera . Man on the ground directs the aircraft in, M/S notice saying 'danger ejection seat'. A man opens the door of the Canberra, and the crew, dressed in grey flying suits with orange life jackets climb out. They walk across to the Tiger Moths. The crew are resting outside a hut on the airfield - one has a model aircraft.

    M/S of a airman in leather jacket as he puts on his leather helmet, and climbs into the aircraft. M/S - he waves that he is ready - man starts propeller, and M/S of the Tiger Moth as the chocks are pulled away, and the plane is seen as it moves off, and then is seen taking off. Lovely air to air shots of the red Tiger Moth in flight - blue sky and fields below.
