AVIATION RELATED VIDEO CLIPS
Dedicated to short Aviation related Video Clips or links to YouTube.
To start things off there is a really good link to the Pathe News site who have digitised thousands of hours of Archive footage.
The following link is taken from the National Archive and features a 74 Squadron Lightning, sequences flown by David Jones & Martin Bee
An excellent Video of Cliff Spink flying his wonderful Spitfire (note the Tigers head)Turn up the volume and listen to that spine chilling V12 Merlin.
This Video clip is about 25 mins long but an interesting insight into flying the P-38 Lightning.
Unfortunately Jeff Ethel’s Dad (a former WW II P-38 Ace) was at the airport watching Jeff land the P-38 when he had a fuel problem, crashed and was killed.
The East Anglian Film Archive has just released over 200 films online covering a multitude of subjects relating to Norfolk and Suffolk and a little further beyond. Amongst them three of RAF Coltishall in the early 1960s are featured and in one there is an interview with a very young Vaughan Radford and others on the station and some excellent film of the Lightning’s.?Click on the link below and type RAF Coltishall in Search .
