RAF Brize Norton

A compelling inside view of the Royal Air Force based at the largest RAF base in the world.

A 7 x 60min observational documentary with unbridled access never granted by the MoD before. We spent 6 months with the Men and Women based at Brize Norton as they fly around the world inc Afghanistan, Cyprus and the Falklands; delivering Troops,cargo and dealing with emergency situations.

is this for real ??

I am not sure as a PR effort it has been brilliantly judged.

The Flt Lt Mover is comedy gold when he spontaneously tries to “muck in” with the lads loading baggage and the first bergen is a “bit heavy”

I haven’t watched it, is it that bad? Airforce in Afghanistan bad, warship bad? ;)

Mind you these sorts of shows are never aimed at people on here.

Not as bad as warship? Well at least not a disaster then.

Being based at RAF Brize Norton this is just train wreck TV. Can’t help watching it though. There are alot of people at work who owe beers.

I can’t say I recollect it being as big as described. But I remember the Officer’s mess, Spotlight (the nightclub), the Naafi store and bowling alley well ……… none of which are included in the film. :-)
