A burnt out plane wreck is being used as part of filming at Bovingdon Airfield for the latest action packed Fast and Furious film.

Film crews who descended on the site last week are expected to be there for several weeks and have already drawn attention to the set, which is manned by security guards, with their night-time flying of a helicopter. It is thought the chopper is being used to film from the air.

The blockbuster, starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, and Luke Evans, will be number six in the Fast and Furious franchise, which is the first movie in the series expected to move away from the underground car racing theme.

It is due to be released in May 2013.
