Film of Royal Navy carrier in the Suez campaign - help!

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

A couple of days ago I came across a short piece of film showing air activity on a Royal Navy carrier during the Suez campaign of 1956. It showed Seahawks & Wyverns being armed and launched, plus some shots of both types landing and a Venom all weather fighter landing wheels up.  The Seahawks in particular had obvious  gun blast staining .

 

I found it when opening up Facebook to check on comments from my kids - about all I use Facebook for apart from browsing occasional aviation magazine information. I don't know where it came from, nor how to get back to it - it seemed to have been loaded up by a Russian or Eastern European site, possibly a kit manufacturer.   Looked to be  an official record or Min istry of Information film.  Has anyone else seen it and does anyone know how I could find that film clip again.   I'm not all expert with Facebook!

 

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

John, there is an Aircraft Carriers of the Royal Navy FB group, a closed group, of which I am a member. You might check there, as a bunch of videos have been posted in the last week or so (that I haven't kept up with...)

Thanks Paul. I shall check that one out - very useful to know about since naval aviation is  a strong interest, way back to the happy days of RN Fulmar & Navy Days.

Found it!  It appears to be an OWM film clip,though OI haven't yet found that on the IWM site.  I'd quite like to have a download of this, so if anyone knows where that can be found, super.

I shall try asking the Russian Model Shop which uploaded it, but I don't speak or write any Russian!
