Bomber Crew C4 21.00 tonight

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by PartTimePongo, Nov 29, 2004.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The team that did Spitfire Ace this time do it with the B-17 and the Lancaster.

    5 Grandchildren of Bomber Command Aviators, get to see what Grandad actually did. Series culminates in one of the lucky 5 getting to sit in the Pilot's seat of a Lanc on a simulated sortie

    Lucky lucky Bast*rd.

    Interestingly, one is the Grandchild of F/Sgt Nicholas Alkemade who left a burning Lancaster at 18,000 feet sans brolly , and woke up in a snowdrift.

    Should be interesting, due to the production temas extensive use of veterans interviews , as per Spitfire Ace.

    Channel 4 UK tonight - 21.00 GMT.

  2. did look in to this as my grandfather was a navigator on lancasters, but the woman said they wanted the grandparents to talk about what they did and it's a sore spot for him (for obvious reasons) so I didnt follow it up
     
  3. Not bad,

    That footage of the Mosquitos on the "Cooks Tour" was incredible.

    Except once again they wheeled out Brendan O' Brien :evil:

    All those really good experts and they use him.

    Oh well , look forward to the rest of it.
