Video: Capt. Eric ‘Winkle’ Brown – Axis aircraft, ejection systems and Schräge Musik

In April 2015 we spoke to our patron, the late Capt. Eric ‘Winkle’ Brown. He discussed some of the captured German aircraft he flew and in particular talked about ejection systems and Schräge Musik.

We are pleased to present that conversation to you now in the following video. Warning: some of the material contained in the video is suitable for mature audiences only.

 

Another video featuring Capt. Brown discussing the Mosquito sea trials is available here.

Thanks to Mark Bloomfield for the generous loan of his time, equipment and expertise, and also to Allan Udy of Historic Aviation Film Unit for providing the superb Mosquito audio featured in the video.
