Safety is No Accident: A 1962 survey of aviation in Australia and the contribution made by the Department of Civil Aviation to air safety. Starts with Essendon. Shows all extant passenger aircraft of the time. 30 mins, colour, 1962

Mystery Film

Engine Fire in Flight A VERY British film. Shows quality shots of several obsolete and uncommon Second World War aircraft, used for showing the effects of engine fire control. Very droll acting and is worth seeing just for that!
