    Does anyone remember seeing a 1950s black and white film about an RAF suqadron flying either DH Vampires or Venoms? It's the only film I can remember in which early RAF jet operations were featured. There was a scene in which the local bird protection society protested about the damage the aeroplanes were doing to the birds...
    Thanks!

    Conflict of Wings (1954)?:

    Apparently, Vampire planes were used in it. It's currently available on Youtube.
