Default WW2 desert Hurricane pilot

Hi




I met a ww2 fighter pilot, Stewart "Bomb" Finney, who flew Hurricanes and Spitfires in North Africa 1941-1942 with SAAF 1 Squadron. His memory is excellent and I interviewed him on camera. To make the interviews interesting I added some IL-2 animation, including bits of CoD.

Here an example: (5 minutes) Thanks to Cheruskerarmin for the SAAF hurricane skins, they look awesome! Used the great maps from Redko and dirt runway dust mod from Exhaton and Soccorrista, thanks again!



Mr. Finney has a heap of war time photographs. I made a web site to present the photographs, videos and other interesting and relevant stuff including his log book:

Any questions to Mr. Finney are welcome as I see him often.

Great Biltongbru!
I watched all the Migeot interviews and they were superb.
I will watch these as well. We should try to find as many veterans as possible, as there are so few of them nowadays.
Thank you for having put that in practice.

Cheers
Rick

Thanks everyone; I love doing interviews with these gentlemen;

Interesting how issues that we wonder about on our forums get solved by hearing from them who were there; I remember the issue on the realism of "curly" gun bullet smoke trails and different colours of tracer; definitely being confirmed with our gentleman.
