Top Twelve Films shot on Bovingdon Airfield


Mosquito Squadron (1969)
Mosquito Squadron a British war film made by Oakmont Productions, directed by Boris Sagal and starring David McCallum. The raid echoes Operation Jericho, a co-ordinated RAF/Maquis raid which freed French prisoners from Amiens jail in which the Mosquito took part.
Bovingdon Airfield was a location for many scenes in the film; four “flightworthy” de Havilland Mosquito aircraft, including RR299, which eventually crashed and was destroyed in July 1996, were based at the airfield.
