Default Old photos and film clips of the Sea plane

Just found this old clips on youtube of the sea plane base, not sure if they have been mentioned before, shows tantalising glimpses of the port and island pre tourist times.

Thank you SWS, what a fantastic find!

I have a number of old black and white framed photos of PP in my home, but those old films are really interesting.

Thanks so much for finding and sharing those.

No problem, I found them by chance, I was looking at a clip of the pizza guy in Trencadora making pizzas, there was also a clip of the chef as well, and one of the linked videos was the one of the seaplanes, I will have a search and see if I can find anymore tomorrow.

Great SWS - I've only watched the first one (and it kept sticking at a few points) but I wonder what happened to the plane that crashed and if the piece of debris floating in the sea was connected to that one.

Really interesting video, you just don't realize what a very busy place the military base was in years gone by.

Well done Sws, I remember one of my retired neighbours told me he once went to
PP by seaplane that took off from Southampton, I think it cost an arm & leg as it
was before mass tourism as today !
I am going to surf the net to see if I can find out more about it.

Another old video of Mallorca, a German travelogue visit to Mallorca in the 1920s, haven't spotted PP yet, but some great shots of Palma and port Soller!

That one is brilliant too Sparky, you can almost smell the fruit and I love the donkeys, or should that be the other way around!

It's not old but I like this from the BBC: Wild Mallorca,

I have the high quality original broadcast version saved on my Topfield PVR for when I need a fix.

Wild Mallorca - YouTube

""Once a holiday destination favoured by intellectuals....""

(change the quality to 480P as it looks slightly better)

I have never seen the turtles anywhere
