    Default Aces High

    If you like the movie 'Aces High' about W.W.1 flying, then it is being shown by ITV4 (Freeview channel 24) at 4.30 p.m. on Saturday 18th May. It is a completely fictitious and contains some historical inaccuracies but itis a good story.

    They look like Tiger Moths but they are actually Stampe SV.4s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stampe-Vertongen_SV.4

    The Avro 504 was real and there was a replica Fokker E.III. The other German W.W.1 planes were adapted post W.W.1 aircraft. The film reused aerial sequences from The Blue Max and Von Richthofen and Brown.[

    Always a good watch. Claims to be based on Cecil Lewis's book Sagittarius Rising which is a great read.
