Winn Family

This shows a crew making ready several Vickers Wellington Mk II aircraft from 104 Squadron at RAF Driffield (?), loading bombs and shells into the bays and moving armaments on low level trailers. The second film features RAF Fighter Command 501 Squadron equipped with Spitfire V aircraft leaving an airfield, in flight and mixed close ups of the squad on the ground next to a Spitfire V aircraft.
