You have probably all been on the website, but if not go to I was looking for info on Heston Airport and by typing Heston into search a mass of old films are available of planes and the airport. I guess the same applies to other airports.

There is some great footage

Try searching for Biggin Hill, there is some great film of very early Airfairs and the naming ceremony of the Canberra.

Yes I have been trolling through some of this footage, unfortunately the titles and headings are a bit obscure so finding specific things using the search facility is difficult. There is some fantastic stuff though. For example film of the Lympne light aircraft trials if you search under Lympne.


P.S And did the whole population chain smoke ln the 20's and 30's.
