* 8th Air Force Fighter Pilots & their P-51s in action - 1945 NEW Exclusiv
e production. The inspiration for this original documentary is a silent 8t
h Air Force information film showing 8th AF P-51 gun camera film shot in th
e snow covered Winter of 1944-1945, with brief unit IDs for each pilot. We'
ve restored the video, added sound effects from real P-51s and included pho

ir Mustangs. You'll see film from legendary aces like "Kit" Carson & his P-
51 "Nooky Booky IV" & many more. Includes exciting air to air & air to grou

er Groups.

School for Danger S.O.E and the French Resistance fight the German Occupa
tion -1944 NEW!
This is one the most exciting World War 2 espionage films you'll see. What'
s unique is that the characters play themselves performing the roles they e
xecuted during World War 2 -- from British secret agents to French Resistan
ce fighters to special mission RAF pilots and operational commanders. This
remarkable film on British S.O.E.(Special Operations Executive) wartime esp
ionage operations in occupied France was shot on location after the Liberat
ion. The film is a composite recreation of actual operations combined into
one story line.
* German World War 2 Newsreels: JG 26, Rommel, Night Fighters, Panzers & m
ore. During World War 2 German combat cameramen were celebrities for a good
reason. These clips are from the "Die Deutsche Wochenshau" newsreel series
. Of course, some of them have a obvious propaganda slant: Nazi leaders are
idolized and retreats are portrayed as victories, but they are also a uniq
ue collection of seldom seen World War 2 films, often in very good to excel
lent condition, as they were shown to the German people and in occupied cou
ntries.

Convair B-58 "Hustler" MITO Tests - 1963 Digitally Restored Color During
the depths of the Cold War, SAC bombers had only 15 to 20-minutes to get a
irborne between the launch of enemy missiles and their arrival at US target
s. That meant that the ability get US air forces on their way quickly and e
fficiently was absolutely essential for survivability, striking power and d
eterrence. A critical element in this quick response was "MITO" - "Minimum
Interval Take-Off." Great B-58 Hustler color footage!
* Expansion to Air Power The Rise of the Army Air Force 1939-43 Between the
eve of World War 2 in June 1939 and December 1943, the US Army Air Force g
rew from 2,402 aircraft and 24,700 personnel to 65,000 aircraft and 2.4 mil
lion personnel - an unprecedented leap. FDRs goal of producing 50,000 plane
s a year was met and surpassed! This engrossing film combines easy to grasp
information with memorable graphics and dramatic historic film footage tha
t makes it all real.
*
Frank Capra's Battle of China Restored NEW! This is the sixth installme
nt of Academy Award winner Frank Capra's legendary "Why We Fight" World War
2 film series, devoted to the often over looked conflict between China and
Japan from the early 1930's through America's entry into World War War 2.
The film does not stint on wartime propaganda, but it is also a unique repo
sitory of footage from this seldom covered theater, including Chinese force
s in action and captured footage of the Imperial Japanese Army and Air Forc
e.
* The Capture of U-505 This film takes a memorable look at World War II adv
anced anti-submarine operations. In June, 1944, Task Force "Guadalcanal," c
ommanded by Captain Daniel V. Gallery, composed of the escort aircraft carr
ier USS Guadalcanal (CVE-60), and five destroyer escorts under the Commande
r Frederick S. Hall were on station off the Cape Verde Islands, where code
intercepts placed German U-Boats. From the outset of the mission, Gallery m
ade it his objective to capture a U-boat, intact, the first for the US Navy
, so that it could be examined in detail by American intelligence.

Saipan Superforts: B-29s Strike Japan Stereo Sound - Exclusive original d
ocumentary. See B-29 pilots & crews on R&R and on mission in their magnific
ent Superfortresses. The fates of many of the B-29s seen in this picture ar
e documented during the film. Some made the ultimate sacrifice. You'll see
a gallery of memorable 73rd Bomb Wing nose art too -- all in living color.
"The "maximum effort" take-off scene is an awe inspiring combination of 18
cylinder engine roar and a musical score that's guaranteed to raise goose b
umps.

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/
