Description: Several Spitfires (with D-Day markings) are shown, lined up on the airstrip. Men put finishing touches to strip, by laying new sections and securing Sommerfeld track (turning a screw-key, to hold each section in place). A general shot of the airfield is followed by film of a Typhoon which has crash-landed (damaging the nose, propeller and engine). A Spitfire taxies and takes off: two Spitfires are seen in the air. A Spitfire taxies into the dispersal area.
