The Last Liberator

Postby OzBiggles1963 » 10 Dec 2017, 03:38

An interesting & informative doco teaser put up on Vimeo a week or so ago regarding the "Last Liberator":

They've been working together for so long that each seems to know by a sort of telepathy when another is in trouble. One never seems to get them together. Get one & the others come after him. To give the devil his due they make a formidable team.

Thanks for this, OzB. Now all we need is the documentary itself to fill in the gaps.

Oooh. It's going to be played on IMAX - We've got an IMAX near us. I will keep my eyes open to see if this is coming.

Modern production techniques really are able now to get across the huge sensations attached to flying, looks like being very good.

Mind you the cinema down the road has a 15ft screen so I'll just have to make do.

But what about Diamond Lil? That's only waiting on an engine.

I believe there is a Liberator under restoration in Melbourne. A volunteer group, have had some setbacks I heard, like people stealing their gear. A great effort by those working on it. A very big job. I worked on a much smaller WW2 restoration which took 10 years. Imagine how much time a huge and complex task like this will need.
