Preserving Audiovisual History

Our mission statement is to discover, record and preserve the audiovisual history of the aircraft, machines and people we come across, and to do it while we can — because often you only get one chance to record history as it's happening. We're passionate about the machines (and topics) we film, so the material we produce is for enthusiasts, by enthusiasts! Join us on this awesome journey, and enjoy lots of video material of aircraft and machinery you've not previously seen.

What's so special about HMTV?

We've been filming The Vintage Aviator Collection's WW1 aircraft for almost two decades, and have also spent a great deal of that time filming other vintage aircraft. We have a huge volume of historic aircraft video footage that we're pulling from our archives and elsewhere and releasing on HMTV as we grow.

Additionally we're interested in all sorts of other stuff—cars, other aircraft, trains, history, military vehicles, fast boats—and we love to share our interests with other people. Let us entertain you with a variety of material, not just a single topic or genre!
