Bolingbrokes and the Son of Lassie

Here we find a very interesting excerpt from the 1945 film "Son of Lassie." Forget the dog...though you see him running in one shot...and focus on all the RCAF heavy iron. Venturas and Kittyhawks in the background and Bolingbrokes front and center. Notice the Bolingbrokes have some interesting markings applied for the movie. These scenes were shot at Patricia Bay in British Columbia. One interesting tidbit is that the RCAF transferred the nose section of Bolingbroke RCAF # 710 to MGM for use in the movie.

Awesome clip. Love the Ventura in the background at the end with the U.S. Navy camo and the painted out star and bar.
