FARNBOROUGH - THE GOLDEN YEARS 1949 - 1959 - BRITAIN'S GREATEST AIR SHOW

From the archives of the famous Imperial War Museum comes a treasured look at history in the making - Farnborough, Britain's greatest air show. Witness the show from 1949 through to 1959 recorded on newsreels shown in the cinemas of the day. What an exciting decade it was, with the accomplishment of technological genius giving birth to innovation we now take for granted. Observe the dangers - the daring test pilots, ever willing to overcome the seemingly impossible and the bravery which cost the life of famed John Derry at Farnborough '52. Enjoy the Black Arrows (the forerunners of the Red Arrows) as they demonstrate the very meaning of precision during their giant aerobatics display.
