Battle of Britain Film - Behind the Scenes Footage

LL'er summary - Lots of VERY low flying, blowing-shit-up and totally ignoring Health & Safety back in 1968.....


Some "behind the scenes" 8mm film shot by an observer of the shooting of the Battle of
Britain Movie in 1968. Filming at RAF Duxford, RAF North Weald, San Sebastian & Seville. Shots of Spitfires, Hurricanes, Messerschmitt ME109's & Heinkel Bombers (Spanish Air Force).

Footage shot May-Oct 1968.

The film maker is that very YT user, CVU500....

"I was a technician working on a 16mm documentary about the making of the film´╗┐ so I decided to shoot a bit of my own 8mm - all silent of course. I added the sound effects & music at home. The
documentary was distributed with the feature DVD. It was a fantastic experience seeing all these wonderful old war planes flying again Many non-flyers were full scale models with lawn mower engines to make the props rotate, and were blown up."
