This is the place for anything not connected with aviation. Strict rules of engagement apply. The moderators' decision is final.
Tried Googling, but no luck except a couple of obscure possible US suppliers. Anyone know where a copy can be obtained from?
Sent from my Bardic lamp held out of the window of a Churnet Valley signal box.
I see VHS tapes are now $30 on Amazon, second hand, or $90 for one in "collectable" condition.
So, old VHS collections that were going to be made into bondage material may be worth something!
VHS tapes from the US will be NTSC though. And DVDs from the US will be region 1, so will only play here if you have a multi-region player.
Certainly scope for whoever holds the copyright to re-issue it, and frankly, huge scope for a re-make.
I would suggest some enterprising UK film company make it, but I understand the Inland Revenue now view anyone who invests in UK film production as a tax-dodging war-criminal, and try and throw them in jail.
Great scope for some cameo appearances from forumites though.
Bags I get the Arrow vs. Mustang gig - we'll ditch the Arrow, re-script it as a Yak attempting to bring contraband pasties in across the Tamar, following the introduction of a swinging prohibition-by-tax on pasties by the UK government, and the subsequent UDI by Cornwall.
Human Factor gets the Mustang (great in a straight line, no good whatsoever at going round corners).
Delta Juliet plays the carbon-wing Wundastunta pilot who gets pipped to the post in the competition by the Pitts pilot.
Uncle Alan gets the role of irascible-but-genius aerobatic Yoda figure.
Casting the absolutely-from-nowhere-to-unlimited-champion Pitts driver might prove tricky...but this is the movies. Miracles happen. So the chap I have in mind has that it-would-take-a-miracle quality...and a Fish Finder GPS.
I'm here at the field....I fight for my meals...I get my Yak into my living......
Was "Flight of the Intruder" on the FB list?
If not, add it to yours immediately Mark
Vietnam War movie featuring lots of cool A6 flying. Better than Top Gun and without the homo-erotic sub text (Or Tom Cruise)

Not entirely modern up to date aviation I would have thought! But yes, it's a good one! I would suggest going to visit Brooklands museum before watching it, and looking at the old site plan and seeing where the sewage works was! (the film is set in fictional "Brookley"...)
