I’m making good progress with the move from DVDs to all videos being available to stream.  But, it’s a slow process as I am upscaling videos as I upload them to a new Vimeo site, that will be launched very soon.  Using AI software, I can convert standard video to wide-screen High Definition; creating both a 33% increase in picture size as well as enhanced quality.

Work is also nearing completion to change this website so that streaming video is offered instead of DVDs.  Before that change takes place, I will notify customers that there will be a short opportunity for them to buy any DVDs they wish to add to their collections.  Some DVDs will be out of stock at that point.

PLEASE BE AWARE that, in order to align our streaming video prices with those generally applying to similar products, you will be able to buy a streaming video for £6.95 or rent one for three days for £3.95.  Non-UK customers will be able to do so in their own currency.  All prices will include VAT or any other local sales tax applicable.

Meanwhile, although we will not be promoting Avion Video, you can order DVDs fully confident that, unless they are now shown as out of stock, they will be dispatched within two working days.

With kind regards

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.

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.
