November 5, 2015 Amazing 1954 Vampire jet film: Conflict of Wings Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
Hilariously released as ‘Fuss over Feathers’ in the US. Note the two Supermarine Swift F. Mk 1s at 24.30 onwards. This was filmed before the Swift had even entered service. The Swift pilot’s disparaging comments about the Vampire seem somewhat premature in hindsight. Shame it’s such a boring film. Spoiler: the birds win.
Watched it in ts entirety yesterday evening. Loved it. And, because Vampires, was seasonally reminded of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s annual broadcast of Frederick Forsyth’s “The Shepherd,” which I intend to listen to tomorrow evening. https://www.cbc.ca/radio/asithappens/as-it-happens-the-shepherd-edition-2017-1.4455219/fireside-al-maitland-reads-frederick-forsyth-s-the-shepherd-1.4458378
