KC-135 tanker taking off which he called the B47 Stratojet and the footage of KC-135 (which he called a KC97 Tanker) refuelling the B47. The KC97 was the piston powered beast developed from the B29 and B50 bombers.
The Auster should be recognised for what it is: a gentleman's aerial touring carriage and a nice aeroplane.

Great footage of the DH86 Express fleet and Vildebeest NZ106 here at the official opening of Milson Airport, Palmerston North, and the launching of Union Airways' new four engined airliners, on the 15th of January 1936.
