    Gloucester Gladiator aircraft flying in formation.

  • Description

    Location Unknown / Unclear, Palestine?

    Various shots of small biplanes in flight. Several shots of the planes flying in formation. Plane landing. More shots of aircraft flying in formation - air to air shots.

    Planes on airfield, cars arriving - they seem to be driving through the desert. Pilot getting ready for the flight. More shots of the cars arriving and pilots getting ready. More shots of the planes in flight and as they land. Close up shot of unknown man at controls of aircraft.

    Amendment Ocotber 2011: A visitor to the site has written in with some comments on this clip. The description previously listed these planes as Gloster Gladiators, but this has now been changed. They are not Gloster Gladiators, but possibly Westland Wapiti. The monoplane that appears might be a De Havilland DH80 Puss Moth and the armoured car with the turret appears to be a 1920 pattern Rolls Royce.
