Many thanks to Dan Wilkins for discovering this wonderful little video.

“The Flying Lesson” is a short film by Phil Hawkins featuring Jessica Blake and Richard J. Fletcher. It was shot in only 5 days on a shoestring budget but I think you’ll be surprised by the quality of the film making and the awesome Tiger Moth aerial shots. The cinematography is beautiful and the story will pull at your heart strings as it unfolds. If you love old Tiger Moths & sentimental stories. If you have 16 uninterrupted, commercial free minutes to spare, I think you’ll enjoy it.

“After the recent death of her grandfather, Phoebe Sanderson (Jessica Blake) takes a flying lesson in the exact plane her grandfather flew in WWII, a recently restored Tiger Moth. With a sense of trepidation, she takes flight with a promise to keep. Only a chauvinistic flying instructor (Richard J. Fletcher) with a secret stands in her way.”
