Movie - Britains Greatest Pilot: The Extraordinary Story of Captain Winkle Brown.  (1hr)

Brown holds the world record for the most aircraft carrier deck take-offs and landings performed (2,407 and 2,271 respectively) and achieved several "firsts" in naval aviation, including the first landings on an aircraft carrier of a twin-engined aircraft, an aircraft with a tricycle undercarriage, a jet-propelled aircraft, and rotary-wing aircraft.

He also flew almost every category of Royal Navy and RAF aircraft: glider, fighter, bomber, airliner, amphibian, flying boat and helicopter. During World War II, he also flew many types of captured German, Italian, and Japanese aircraft, including new jets and rocket planes. He was a pioneer of jet technology into the postwar era.
