IN THE PRISONER: In "Many Happy Returns", Number Six bids farewell to the Colonel and Thorpe (Donald Sinden and Patrick Cargill) at an airfield before his jet flight to search for the location of The Village.
IN REALITY: This is Chalgrove Airfield, a private facilility near the village of Chalgrove (10 miles South of Oxford). The 3-runway airfield is now home to two Meteor aircraft, and is largely used for ejector seat testing and ferrying technicians to and from Northern Ireland. The plane used in the sequence was a Meteor (stock footage provided by Chalgrove-based seat manufacturer Martin-Baker, who own the airfield, was used in the series).
