Description: The aircraft is seen at various angles in flight, firstly air to air then from the ground. At one point the aircraft performs some simple aerobatic manoeuvres and, skimming the cloud tops, gives a good impression of an aeroplane at speed. The aircraft is also filmed from the ground wherein the cameraman accidentally provides the viewer with a good, uncluttered panning shot of the airfield.

Notes: Summary: The photography of this reel is particularly good and shows off the aircraft well. The codes 'HA' carried by this aircraft have been incorrectly applied and should read AF*H denoting a machine of the Air Fighting Development Unit.
