The 362nd Fighter Group On the prowl over Germany in Color - NEW Remastered for broadband streaming . Exclusive documentary! Select 362nd Fighter Group P-47 Thunderbolt fighter/bombers were specially equipped with color movie cameras to capture thrilling ground and air attacks as they happened. These squadrons were tasked with striking targets inside Germany as the war against the Third Reich entered it's final act in Spring, 1945. The result is unique "from the cockpit" views putting you in the middle of attacks on tanks, airfields, trucks, rail yards, bridges, trains, fighters, and more.
Collecting and Reporting Enemy Information by Fighter Pilots in World War 2 - NEW This training film features P-39 Airacobras of "the 181st Squadron" carrying out a complete mission, with an emphasis on briefing sessions, gathering intelligence during a combat mission, and how to give accurate after action reports. Basic squadron tactics are also covered. This is a very rare look inside fighter pilot tactical training in World War 2.
Research Test Flight of Convair Model 7002 - XF92A Airplane - 1948 New This little gem would be right at home in the movie "The Right Stuff," showing early delta wing jet flight testing at Muroc Air Force Base. The print had severe color shifts & fading that I digitally corrected. This rare color film shows the 7002 being tested by Consolidated (Convair) in 1948 at the Muroc Test Base in California, (later Edwards Air Force Base). Although reportedly underpowered & a handful to fly, it's hard to imagine a more influential aircraft. The delta wing was not only adopted in the Convair's F-102 and B-58, but also in a long series of other US, British, French, and Russian designs
John Huston's "Report from the Aleutians" (Restored Color) NEW Remastered for broadband streaming. This classic color film, directed and narrated by Academy Award Winner John Huston, shows the first offensive steps of the rapidly expanding Army Air Corps at the dawn of World War 2 in the Pacific. Rare early war color footage includes P-39 Airacobras, the first operational deployment of P-38E Lightning fighters, B-25 Mitchells, Navy PBYs and some of the first missions flown by B-24 Liberator bombers by US forces
The Fighting Lady (Restored Color) follows the fictional career of an Essex Class aircraft carrier from the Marcus Islands campaign, through Tinian, Truk, the "Mariana's Turkey Shoot" and much more. But don't let the term "fictional" miss lead you. All of the footage shown in this fascinating composite documentary is real -- shot by combat cameramen on board ship and in the air, showing actual Navy and Marine pilots and crewmen up close and personal.
B-52 Vietnam: Operations Out of U Tapao Air Base, Thailand The focus of this dramatic film is an "Arc Light" bombing mission flown by Pilot Captain George Dietrich and the crew of B-52 D "075," 4258th Strategic Wing out of U Tapao, Thailand in support of the besieged marine base at Khe Sahn in 1968. You'll see every aspect of the mission from Wing briefing, pre-flight check & takeoff, through the bomb run and final touch down. This film is a favorite among B-52 vets!
We also show 1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy films and pilot's manuals on how to fly the F4U, F6F, P-38, P-39, P-40, P-47, P-51, P-61, TBF/TBM, AT-6/SNJ, B-17, B-24, B-25, A-20, A-26, B-26, B-29, and Stearman N2S. Alert! - don't miss the F-86 & B-58!
