Hanover Steet B-25s on the telly

Recommended Posts

We've probably all seen "Mitchells Do Fly In IMC" about a gazillion times

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2520800/

 

...the doco of how Jeff Hawke and others flew a motley assortment of B-25s across the Atlantic to take part in the not-very-good Harrison Ford feature, Hanover Street"

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079268/

 

You may not have seen Hanover Street itself, but if you're in the UK and you want to, then it's on Talking Pictures TV today (Sat) at 14.50.

Channel 81 on Freeview / YouView, Virgin 445, Freesat 306, Sky digital satellite 328.

Slightly off-topic but some of you might enjoy this YouTube video of eleven B-25's that attended a Doolittle Raid anniversary ceremony at the Air Force Museums- the B-25H was the class of the field, in my opinion. Enjoy!

Thanks for that. It was frankly considerably more enjoyable than Hanover Street, which, as I was painfully reminded, contains some of the clunkiest dialogue ever to make it into a mainstream Hollywood picture. Which is odd, because Peter Hyam has written and directed some good pictures, including Capricorn One which also has some enjoyable flying in it.

Remember seeing the Hannover St B-25s at Blackbushe prior to filming, and one at DX afterwards. Rattly, smoky things.
