Great!
The narrator, is that a voice over or the actual cameraman?

What planes were the British flying? Were they Beaufighters or A-20's? Fast whatever they were... Great footage, too bad you didn't get the see the end of both stories. They eventually lost Africa and Stalingrad.

Blenheims and Beauforts in the Med.

The first aircraft is a Blenheim V (also known as the Bisley), you can actually see the bombs falling from the bay.

Then the Beauforts come in with the torpedoes, you can see the first Beaufort being hit by the AA.

It's extraordinary stuff, I've seen bits of it used as stock footage in documentaries but never all together like that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Danke for the information. Lot's of guts needed to fly straight into the teeth of all that friggin' flak. Those Nazi's weren't playing. They were throwing everthing but the kitchen sink at those bombers/toropedo planes. God what guts that musta took, man.
