British Pathe News Footage I possess cannot be reproduced here because of Pathe copyright. But if you click the links below they will take you directly to the British Pathe web site and at least two Bloodhound Mk1 Firing sequences at Woomera shown in cinemas in the late 1950’s when the Bloodhound Mk 1 came into service with the RAF. (There are more clips if you browse the site)
The 3rd clip below is a short silent film showing a Bloodhound Mk2 firing, filmed by RAE Aberporth in 1961, prior to full production and almost 30 years RAF service.
On the RAE Aberporth Firing, click the little box on the Pathe site to enlarge to full screen and see the target aircraft plunge into the sea, followed by parts of the missile.
Cardigan bay is littered with missile parts to this day, sometimes brought up in trawler nets.
The Pathe web site has over 90,000 news clips available to view by the public FREE as “previews”, with an option to purchase and own.
If you are “baby boomer” generation and went to the cinema in this era, you can explore the Pathe site and view many stories of those times that you may find familiar.
