This short video was filmed by Huni Melissa Bolliger for the NT Dept of Tourism, Sports and Culture and the NT Major Events Company in December 2018 at SAAM. It tells the story of FLTSGT Colin Duncan’s bail-out of his on-fire Spitfire A58-2 during an attack on Darwin on 30 June 1943.
Ms Bolliger filmed actor pilot Bill Allert in the Badger family’s Mk Vc Spitfire UP-O EE853 (A58-146) on display at SAAM. You can play the video from the image below, or go to our Media Gallery page to view other videos here.
