The Ian Fleming Foundation procures James Bond memorabilia, especially the vehicles from the movies. If you’ve been to Bond in Motion or many James Bond exhibits, you’ve seen their work.
Here we talk to Doug Redenius, one of the founders of the Ian Fleming Foundation. They are dedicated to the study and preservation of the history of Ian Fleming’s literary works, the James Bond phenomenon, and their impact on popular culture.
So, if you like the Hiller UH-12 helicopter used in FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE, Goldfinger’s Lockheed US VC-140B Jet Star, the Auto-Rickshaw Tuk-Tuk from OCTOPUSSY, the plane that Sanchez flies in LICENSE TO KILL and many more, take a listen. Doug tells us about these and many other items that the Ian Fleming Foundation has secured. In addition, find out what Doug’s favorite find has been. The hunt for these items is fascinating.
Doug tells us what vehicles they have, how they find and procure the vehicles, and how they get the vehicles restored if necessary.
