On August 19th, 1942 Canadian and British forces launched an attack on the German Naval headquaters in Dieppe, Northern France. The raid was a disaster but lessons were learnt that helped the Allies in their planning for D-Day 2 years later.

On August 19th, 2012, a Spitfire Mark 5b from the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flew a short display over Dieppe to commemorate the raid. Remarkably the Spitfire had actually flown 4 sorties during the raid, shooting down a German bomber.

We joined up with Spitfire AB910 for a photoshoot immediately after her display.

Filmed on Panasonic 101 with Panasonic Lumix 14-42mm lens and Atomos Ninja ProRes recorder. Although I have filmed air-to-air many times, this was the first time I had used this set up in this kind of environment. The camera was very easy to use. Sequence was edited in Grass Valley Edius.
