Spitfires to 737s
This isn’t a DVD of the Bournemouth Air Festival that takes place each summer along the seafront. Instead, it’s a close up look at many of the air show participants, together with Bournemouth Airport’s normal traffic.
Filmed in superb High Definition Video, there are some wonderful sequences bringing you a completely different experience of, for example, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight aircraft. Gone are brief air show flypasts, accompanied by music and a blaring public address system.
Instead, you stand in front of a Spitfire and a Hurricane starting up and then taxiing out for take off or watch the Red Arrows streaming in to land one by one. The Lancaster too has a stunning landing sequence that turns into a really close up taxi past the camera – beautiful video and sound!
Most of the DVD was filmed during the 2011 Air Festival but some sequences are from 2010, covering aircraft like the Vulcan and F16 that didn’t appear this year.
