I flew in a B-25 in Toronto about 15 years ago- quite an agile aircraft actually.

The pilots of those two Ilyushins must be related.

I presume both aircraft were overloaded?

You'd be gutted if you'd just packed up the tools frown

Strange one, almost looks like someone leant on the release button in the cockpit? Nothing seems to have snapped. Moral: Never stand under a suspended load!

Sounds like it lost an engine. You can hear the change in turbine noise.

That comment got me to thinking about the date of the incident. Three RAF Squadrons wore the 'SH' code, but No. 216 Sqn was transport, and No. 240 Sqn was flying boats, which leaves only No. 64 Sqn as operating Spitfires AND using the 'SH' code.

I'm struggling to identify the particular Mark of the Spitfire in the clip, but I'm going with a three-bladed propeller and cannon in the wings, which would put it as a Mk1B at the very earliest. So some time after June 1940 if a brief scout about on Google has brought up correct information...

So you like helicopters, huh?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mi3awMLJTw

Bucketloads of the buggering things. I was there for this display, along with my four-year old (helicopter obsessed) son. The footage doesn't capture it well either. The AAC brought many of the helicopters in from elsewhere, and the ones from Middle Wallop sort of "sneaked away" while other things were going on, then they formed up behind over behind Danebury Hill Fort. You couldn't really hear them from that distance, so the crowd only really noticed the massed approach when the aircraft lights went on and they started moving toward the airfield. I doubt we'll ever see such a spectacle again...

I went to Music In The Air at middle wallop some years ago, they did a massed helicopter approach while the live orchestra played Ride of the Valkyries. I thought that was impressive but nowhere near as many of them as that video!
