Some interesting things here.  Can you ID the plane at 1:37?

Very cool vid !  First glance the aircraft at 1:37 look like some JU88 variant. But it's not. Nose and tail area got me baffled.

Is this a trick question? Sure looks like a Stirling to me.

I agree.  It looks like a Short Stirling Mk V.

A stirling.  But the nose is a bit different config then the other versions I've seen, perhaps a marine or recon version?
