Thx Didier,

Video Spitfire formations in Duxford

The "trade mark" of Duxford Flying Legends. Sometime, when the formations are flying nobody is no more talking, just our noze pointed to the sky. 

A special attention to Lucien who transports us Duxford so much time (and I hope for many years in the future).

Video : The German

Thx Dirk for sharing
The German
About this video:
"Written and Directed by Nick Ryan
Starring Toby Kebbell and Christian Brassington

10 minute short film

A British fighter pilot pursues the german ace that shot down his friend across sky and country... with murder in mind. But he discovers it's not so easy to kill a man when you have to look them in the eye

This was funded by an Irish Film Board scheme called 'Short Cuts' and was shot in November 2007. The Budget was €70K, and was used entirely on the live action components of the film - leaving a grand total of ZERO for visual effects!

I completed all the visual effects shots, over 120 in total, entirely by myself. Dave Head modelled the aircraft (and truck), but I textured, lit, animated and composited the shots over a six month period in 2008."

Tuesday, 3 January 2012 : Spitfire redux: The WWII guns firing after 70 years buried in peat

Thx Phil for sharing

Spitfire graphic

An excavation at the site of a 1941 Spitfire crash in a bog in the Irish Republic
uncovered huge, remarkably preserved chunks of

plane and six Browning machine guns. After 70 years buried in peat could they be made to fire?
They certainly could, writes Dan Snow.
