Wing Commander Ken Wallis passed away on 1st September. To the layman, he was famous as the pilot of Little Nellie, the James Bond gyrocopter. To people within aviation, he was a legend and holder of many world records for piloting autogyros. A pilot for more than seventy years, a serving bomber pilot in the Royal Air Force for the duration of World War Two, his life was a truly remarkable one. This short film by Electric Egg Productions is part of a larger series of interviews for a film about surviving airmen from the Second World War.
It’s a wonderful film, around twelve minutes long. Pour yourself a glass of something you enjoy and toast the life of a truly remarkable pilot.
