Several scenes were filmed at Brooklands - the Clubhouse and the banking are clearly visible. When the Ministry Dragon Rapide comes into land, a Wellington is just visible in the background. The test plane appears to be an Airspeed Oxford; other planes were Tiger Moths and Gypsy Moths, and possibly a Bristol Fighter (just the engine and propeller are seen). See more »

Very pleasant classic, never mind the little perforations.
A 'Korda Collection' classic film and I shan't part with my videocassette - 'Tiger' comic script and stilted dialogue notwithstanding. Doesn't even matter that McVane appears to take off in a different airplane to that which is captured and seen in flight. Only trouble with Valerie Hobson is she retired too early.
