: Hi all
: I was up till the wee small hours the other night and saw
: this amazing movie called Purple Plain (not Plane) about M
: ossies being operated out of Burma in colour - there was s
: ome amazing color footage of Mossies , an Anson Mk 1 and a
: Dakota all flying in and out of jungle fields in color.
: On the downside the "special effects' were largely based o
: n Airfix mossies being pushed around the sky on fishing li
: ne and some really bad crash scenes which incidentially (a
: nd unfortunately) resulted in the burning of a real mossie
: .
: The story was OK but nothing to write home about and the a
: ircraft scenes are fairly short but worth seeing.
