In November 1996, Langley historian John Kendrick received a letter from Fred Mills (then living in Canada) who told him he'd taken a silent 8mm cine film while at Langley aerodrome in the 1940s. The film contains shots of various BSAA aircraft including Avro Lancastrians Star Light and Star Trail, and Avro York Star Gleam. Knowing my interest in BSAA, John kindly lent the film to me.  
  It also contains some shots of Avro Tudors belonging to Airflight (G-AGRY) and BOAC (G-AGRF Elizabeth of England), probably taken at Blackbushe and Heathrow. Although not BSAA, these shots have been retained in this version for interest. Most importantly, there are several shots of BSAA engineering staff at Langley. As would be expected, the quality of film is variable, but if anyone viewing this recognises any of the people shown, we would love to hear from you!
