1968 saw the 50th Anniversary of the Royal Air Force. In a few decades the new service had moved from planes of wood and canvas, held together by bits of string and driven by iron engines, to futuristic visions of aluminium and plastics that blasted themselves to the edge of space.  Group-Captain Douglas Bader, arguably the most famous British flyer of the second World War, offers fascinating insight into many of the great aircraft of the Royal Air Force's illustrious past - from propeller to supersonic jet.  Thrill at 19 classic British warplanes captured in breathtaking stereo sound, with captivating commentary by an RAF flying legend.
