  • Short Summary

    Bombing Squadron demonstrate formation flying at Royal Air Force Pageant.

  • Description

    Spittlegate, nr. Grantham, Lincolnshire.

    Edited story runs until approximately 01:15:55. This version seems almost identical to LIKE SOLDIERS IN THE SKY (short version). Please see separate record for details.

    Story followed by cuts / out takes. Some more shots of aeroplanes taxiing across the airfield to take off. Some interesting, if a little unsteady, shots taken looking over the pilots shoulder at the controls, dials and the nose of the plane.

    After some spacing, cuts resume at 01:19:14. Rest of shots are same or similar to those in the edited version.
