Duxford :: 7.V.14 :: The end of the reel?

After almost eight years of watching gun camera film, I have watched my last reel (until they find some more!).
The last clip on the last reel, coincidentally dated the 7th….

IWM

Meanwhile, elsewhere…
Mk Vb AB910 tail nearing completion.
MH434 and Frankie just before being unleashed for exercise…

The invitation to take some closeup shots of these inside by OFMC staff was ruined in what can only be described as a basic schoolboy error - shooting 'arm-height' using the LCD screen without my reading glasses, while on manual focus, results in out of focus images. 
D'oh…..

  2. Haha - a new film project awaits me - if there are any ACC cookery tips I'll be sure to send them to W/C Joe!
