    Nice to see this clip again. Sqn Leader P J S Finlayson AFC was my dear old Dad.
    He retired as a Group Captain in 1975 and died January this year aged 98. Learnt to fly @ 17, flew Coastal Command, Ferry Commard in WW2. Followed by Berlin Airlift, early jets in Fighter Command. Wing Co Flying Operation Grapple / Christmas Island, Thor Cuban Missile Crisis. Stellar career.
