This reviewer is not a collector of current air show DVDs which can be seen today, but very much in favour of having old films from a previous era recorded for posterity as a historical record of times before the digital era. Those that have been to the Royal International Air Tattos at Fairford and the Farnborough Air Shows will appreciate this DVD, as the defnitive collection of films and trailers that are available to record the RAF's first air shows, the Hendon Air Pageants and Empire Air Days of the 1920s and 1930s.
Before this DVD was released, only clips of these films were seen on other historical aviation DVDs like the hostory of the RAF or the history of RAF aerobatic teams. Some of them could also be viewed on the British Pathe website, albeit in low resolution. Now we have them all compiled in cronological order from 1920 until the final display at Hendon in 1951. The first clips from the 1920s have no sound, so period music improvises and well known Farnborough commentator John Blake narrates. However, his commentary is somewhat impromptu, as he often states the obvious when describing the scene and a pre-prepared script would have been nice! The 1930s film clips include original sound and there is some marvellous air-to-air footage of Hawker Harts and Furies included, amongst other types. For the aviation nostalgia enthusiast, this DVD is a treat to now have all these films on one DVD, recalling times when Health & Safety wasn't around to ruin air shows like it does today and the public was thrilled by life bombing runs, shooting down balloons on fire and lots of pyrotechniques. Great stuff and thanks again to Strike Force Entertainment for filling this gap in the aviation DVD collection.

Superb old film of many forgotton but visually impressive aircraft as well as the starts of the time. With a very nice and gentle old-time narration that includes one or two errors for the spotter.
