RAAF Beaufighters in action

Just picked up a link to this video on another forum and thought I'd share it here.

As a massive fan of the Beaufighter I found that this video is a joy and contains the very best aerial shots of the Beau that I have ever seen - as a bonus there's also some excellent footage of the Douglas Boston in action as well.

Most of all the stories and recollections of RAAF aircrew on the operations in the south west Pacific theatre are engaging and fascinating, told by the very brave men who were there. All in all just about the best video I've seen for ages.

Me too - have got three Beaus on the go at the moment and really need to get one in the air this summer. There's a fly-in at the home of the Dallachy Strike Wing on 4th May, but that's likely to be too early, worth a recce with some sports models though
