As I approach my 75th birthday, it’s time for me to retire and, in so doing, end the production of airliner videos that I’ve made for over 30 years.

As part of that retirement process, we’re having a sale from October to the end of December, with all DVDs priced according to current stock levels. After that, all copyright and intellectual properties will transfer from Avion to me personally and their status will be protected.

All DVDs will remain available for the whole of the sale period, at the prices shown on-line, which will not change. Thirty-five DVDs have been reduced in price, with some as low as £4.95.

To see which ones have been reduced, click on ‘View our Range’ above and then select ‘Special Offers’ from the drop-down menu.

After many years of subsidising postal costs, UK charges have had to increase slightly and there is no longer free delivery for five or more DVDs.  Non-UK customers will see a big increase in shipping charges, again to reflect actual costs, but also because all such deliveries will now be made by a tracked airmail service.  This ensures compliance with the latest regulations and increases reliabilty.

It’s been great fun; I’ve enjoyed creating these memories for you and getting to meet or talk to so many of you.  Thank you for your friendship, custom and support.  May I wish you all the best for the future.

With kind regards

Howard Asbridge

Ordering from the EU or elsewhere outside the UK?

We have been selling DVDs world-wide for 30 years, so we are used to complying with Customs procedures. However, recent requirements for the electronic pre-notification of UK exports have made it necessary to send all non-UK orders by a trackable airmail service.  Although that’s a faster and more reliable service, shipping costs have had to increase significantly.

Please be aware that import duty and sales tax may be charged on DVD deliveries to EU countries.

Enjoy our classic airliner videos on DVD or stream in HD, but hurry – sales ends 31st December.

For thirty years we’ve been creating high quality programmes featuring classic airliners world-wide. Using the latest digital video technology, our wide variety of classic airliner videos capture our fascination with air transport, both past and present.

There’s no music, except over some title sequences; just high quality authentic sound. An informative commentary enhances each video, but never interferes with the action or the sounds you want to hear.

For two decades, we had airside access to bring you close-up views from around the ramps and right alongside the runways. The result is a catalogue with some of the best classic airliner DVDs and streaming videos available today.

We also go back as far as the 1940s, using digitally restored cine film and video to create some wonderful classic airliner programmes, all with accurate authentic sound.

What are our favourites?  Difficult!  How about BOAC and Pan Am Stratocruisers in colour at London Airport? Restoring and flying on a Boeing 707 from Australia to Manston via Cairo?  The history of the Vickers VC10?  Fabulous big prop action plus wide-body freighters in Alaska?  Kai Tak filmed airside, from a helicopter and from an A340 flightdeck?  Vikings at Blackbushe?  Flying with Air Atlantique on a DC6 and a DC3?  Airside at Heathrow, with loads of 747s, in 2005?  DC7s and Super Connies at Miami?  Vintage Ringway?  Just some of the highlights from our classic airliner DVDs.

Most of our programmes have a Factsheet listing all the aircraft featured. These can be downloaded from this website.

Some of our material has been used by the BBC and other major TV companies.  We are always happy to discuss the commercial use of our extensive film and video archive.

We are a UK based Company and all our prices are in Pounds Sterling.

We never supply details of our customers to other companies or third parties.
