Then the focus turns to tactics for escorting friendly bombers and attacking enemy bomber formations - and more!

* 354th Fighter Group P-51 Mustang Pioneers in Color. New edition with sound effects & new material! This is an updated revision of a documentary I created 6 years ago with added sound effects plus exclusive new footage of Lt. B W Carr climbing out of the captured German FW 190 fighter that he stole after being shot down & flew back to his own airfield! Rare color film of the legendary 354 Fighter Group in action, with over 700 Kills, the highest scoring American unit in Europe. Nice scenes with the group's well known P-51Ds too, including "Margie Maru" and "Angel's Playmate." This was the first group to fly P-51Bs in the ETO. Amazing color gun camera film!

* P-47 Thunderbolt Aerobatics & High Altitude Flight NEW! See the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt Rock & Roll! Loops, rolls, dives, the big "Jug" can do it all. Contains a thorough explanation of high altitude P-47 turbo-supercharger theory & operation too!

* More World War 2 German Newsreels. NEW! Highlights include: JU-87 Stukas attack Warsaw, 3rd Panzer Army's Winter defense of Vitebsk, King Tiger II Tanks, FW 190 dive bombers operate on the Eastern Front, Marder one man torpedo craft, 15th Panzer Grenadier (including Mark V Panther tanks) counter attacks the Americans at Luneville, Panzerkamphwagen VI and much more.

* Wings Up! USAF World War 2 Officer Candidate School. NEW! Narrated by Academy Award Winner Capt Clark Gable. This film was developed by the Army Air Corps to show men what to expect when they entered Officer's Candidate School in Miami Florida. There was a lot more to becoming an officer than learning how to fly.

* Bird Dog FAC for F-100s Supports US Army in Vietnam. (Color) This short film real gem! You'll see an Air Force Forward Air Controller (FAC) assigned to the 1st Division, flying a tiny Cessna O-1E Bird Dog spotting for three F-100 fighter bombers out of Phan Rang and local Army Artillery. Their mission is in support 3rd Brigade operations against VC bases near Lai Khe, 50 miles from Saigon.

* US Navy Aircraft Aerial Torpedo Attack - High Speed High Altitude. Originally developed to educate pilots about new torpedoes that could be dropped from higher (and therefore less vulnerable) altitudes and speeds, the film also gives a through grounding in torpedo attacks in general. You'll learn about depth setting, range estimation, target angles, leading the target, the effect of crosswinds, working with fighters and dive bombers during an attack, using radar, countering evasive ship maneuvers and much more.

* Operating Light & Medium Tanks in World War 2. Not only does this film cover the basics of operating World War 2 era American tanks, it offers a rare look at two seldom seen early examples, the M-3 Medium "Lee," (British "Grant") and the M-3 Light "Stuart." A Lee was featured in the 1943 Hollywood classic motion picture "Sahara," starring Humphrey Bogart. The Stuart appeared in many episodes of DC Comic's "Jeb Stuart and the Haunted Tank," often in the unlikely role of taking on German Tigers,

The Fighting Lady. (Color) A new color corrected color print from the National Archives really brings this film to life! "The Fighting Lady" 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 "fictionalized" 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. ("The Fighting Lady was actually the nickname given to the Yorktowns, CV-5 & CV-10.)

We also show 1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy training 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-47 & B-58!

* 362nd Fighter Group P-47s Over Germany New edition with sound effects! Exclusive Production This is an updated edition of the documentary that I produced on the 362nd Fighter Group 8 years ago. I've added sound effects from real P-47s & .50 cal machine guns, tightened up the edit & added new info. IMHO, it’s some of the most exciting P-47 Thunderbolt action to come out of World War 2! Select 362nd Fighter Group P-47 Thunderbolt fighter/bombers were specially equipped with extra color movie cameras to capture thrilling ground and air attacks as they happened. 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.

* The A-6E Intruder - Any Weather, Any Time - Restored Color NEW! This video not only has great A-6 Intruder footage, there's also on the spot interviews with pilots & Air Wing Commanders discussing the aircraft's outstanding capabilities The A-6E was the definitive all weather version of the Navy's A-6 Intruder attack bomber with upgraded navigation and attack systems

* The Story of the Northrop YB-49 Flying Wing 1949 Restored Color NEW! The Flying Wing was the brainchild of Jack Northrop, who started work on the concept in the 1930s. It may be hard to believe today, but the original Flying Wing's innovative design was often used against it by detractors from competing aircraft companies ("An airplane that doesn't have a tail??!!") So, Northrop Aircraft produced this information film to extol the Wing's virtues and answer her critics.

* DZ Normandy The D-Day Airborne Invasion, June 6th, 1944 D-Day 70th Anniversary "DZ Normandy: The Employment of Troop Carrier Forces" was produced during World War 2 to show the strategic and tactical planning that went into the airborne component of the June 6th, 1944 D-Day invasion as well as document the actual proceedings. Great D-Day footage seen nowhere else.

* The True Glory From D-Day to the Elbe D-Day 70th Anniversary The True Glory" tells the breathtaking story of the Allied sweep across Northern Europe, seen through the lenses of hundreds of Combat Cameramen, It takes you through the major episodes of the northern European Campaign, starting with Invasion preparations, the D-Day Landings, the capture of Cherbourg, Caen, Falaise, the liberation of France, Market Garden, Antwerp & Brussels, the Battle of the Bulge, crossing of the Rhine and the final campaign into Germany to defeat the ****.

* Action at Angaur 81st Infantry Division's Baptism of Fire NEW! I digitally restored this video. Some of the original footage was over or underexposed in the heat of battle. 70 years later using modern technology I was able to correct some of that. Brave Combat Cameraman gave their lives shooting this film. "Action at Angaur" follows the men of the rookie 81st Infantry Division from R&R on Waikiki to a training landing on Guadalcanal to ferocious fighting on the beaches & in the jungles of the island of Angaur.

* Avoiding & Controlling Spins and Stalls in World War 2 Aircraft Many deaths in World War 2 planes were actually caused by pilot error, rather than enemy fire. The problem was so serious that the US Navy produced this film to directly address the problem. Features examples using an F6F Hellcat, F4U Corsair, PBY Catalina & more!

* John Ford's Battle of Midway - Restored Color - Midway 72nd Anniversary. The Battle of Midway" is an Academy Award Winning documentary, directed by four time Oscar Winner John Ford (The Quiet Man, The Grapes of Wrath, Stage Coach, The Informer). This stirring documentary was shot by director John Ford during the intense June 4th Japanese carrier plane attacks on Midway Island and by Navy Combat Cameramen aboard the USS Yorktown during the epic carrier battle, along with color gun camera film of air to air and air to sea combat.

We also show 1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy training 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-47 & B-58!

* The Big Lift The Western Allies face-off against the Russians in Berlin NEW! In June 1948 in one of the first confrontations in the Cold War, the Soviets cut land supply lines to the Allied sectors of West Berlin, which was deep in the Russian controlled Eastern Zone in occupied Germany. The Soviets tried to starve the Allies out of the city. In response the Western Powers organized the massive 24/7 Berlin airlift to carry supplies. This gripping feature length drama starring Montgomery Clift, with a supporting cast of real US servicemen, was shot on location in occupied Germany. It pulls no punches in depicting the challenges, to the point of physical violence, when Americans and Germans, recent enemies, were thrown together by the new reality of post war Europe.

* P-61 Black Widow Night Fighters in color. Very rare color P-61 night fighter footage. This is an original documentary I put together from unedited, silent archival film. See the 422nd NFS operating out of Florennes, Belgium. Then you'll move on to the Pacific and the island of Saipan, where you'll see legendary 548th NFS P-61 "Bat Outta Hells." One the highlights of this program is P-61 gun camera film showing a night attack with bombs, rockets and 20mm cannon.

* Target for Tonight This classic film follows RAF crew "F for Freddie," a Vicker's Wellington medium bomber (Millerton Station, Group 33), through an entire low level night attack on an oil storage depot at a rail yard, from planning through return to base,.

* House Search for World War 2 Spies NEW! From the C.I.A. Archives, a "hands on" agent training film produced by the O.S.S. (Office of Strategic Services) during World War 2 on the art of hiding (and finding) objects & secret information hidden in locations like homes, apartments and hotel rooms.

“No Sweat” Flight safety training featuring the F-86D Sabre. Told in a realistic "Film Noire" style, this film was produced by USAFE (United States Air Force, Europe) and filmed on location in Germany in the 1950s in order to cut down on costly air accidents resulting from pilot error. Seemingly trivial mistakes sometimes led to SNAFUs -- or worse. You'll follow a pilot flying an F-86D through what should have been a routine hop, but turns into anything but!

* Medium Bombardment & Attack featuring the B-25.This unique film was made to train B-25 & A-20 medium bomber squadrons transitioning from Europe to the Pacific, with a focus on the North American B-25. These groups were primarily tasked with ground and anti-ship attacks, inflicting huge losses on Japanese forces. Different tactics are shown as well as steps taken to modify B-25s for ground attack. Great footage of extremely low level actions!

* Design for War: U-Boat Attack (Victory at Sea). NEW! From 1939 to 1941 the German Navy accelerated U-Boat production and unleashed their subs in the Atlantic, while the Allies scrambled to defend vulnerable convoys. Captured German film shows U-Boat C--in-C Admiral Karl Donitz and leading U-Boat aces like top scorer Günther Prien (200,000 tons sunk) in action. This period of great success was known as Die Glückliche Zeit (The Happy Time) by U-Boat crews.
* Killers and the Killed: The Allies turn the tables on the U-Boats. (Victory at Sea) NEW! From 1942 to1945 the Western Allies built a string of air bases around and across the Atlantic to extend air cover over convoys for their entire voyage and launched numerous anti-sub aircraft carriers. German U-Boats were no longer safe in the Atlantic and losses mounted rapidly. Rare film of anti-submarine aircraft variants like the Lockheed Ventura, maritime versions of the B-24 Liberator and the Martin PBM Mariner.

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-47 & B-58!

* 9th AF 362nd Fighter Group P-47 Thunderbolts in Action NEW! I produced this original documentary from dark, faded, silent gun camera film footage from the Spring of 1945 over Germany that I digitally restored I've added additional info about the pilots and planes and real P-47 sound effects. Featured pilots from the 362nd FG are Alvin Lieberman, Robert A Jackson and the legendary Wilfred Crutchfield, flying his P-47 "Kentucky Colonel," attacking a wide variety of ground targets.

* Thunderbolt! Exclusive restored color edition with additional footage never shown in theaters! "Thunderbolt!" chronicles the exploits of the P-47 Thunderbolt pilots of the 65th Fighter squadron, 57th Fighter Group. Based on the island of Corsica off the northwest coast of the Italian boot, the 57th FG flew from behind the enemy's flank. As part of "Operation Strangle," they continuously attacked highways, bridges, ammo dumps, railroads and just about anything that moved to choke off the flow of supplies to the Axis front line. A true classic!

* Gung Ho! The Story of Carlson's Makin Island Raiders (Restored) NEW! This classic Hollywood war movie is based on the true-life World War II Makin Island raid on Japanese forces by Lieutenant Colonel Evans Carlson's 2nd Marine Raider Battalion (17--18 August 1942). The mission was to destroy installations, take prisoners, gather intelligence on the Gilbert Islands and divert Japanese attention from Allied landings on Guadalcanal and Tulagi. An all star cast includes Randolph Scott, Robert Mitchum, J. Carol Naish, Rod Cameron and Noah Beery Jr.

* Axis War News 1941-1944. Digitally Restored) NEW! Some highlights:German air & naval forces (Tirpitz!) attack Allied convoys to Murmansk. Italian Sub Barbarigo operating in the South Atlantic. German & Italian forces attack an allied convoy in the Med. The fight for the Red October Factory in Stalingrad. The battle before Leningrad. Rommel's Afrika Korps is resupplied. German defensive lines and fortifications in Italy. HE 111 bomber attacks on the Eastern Front. Axis forces defend the "Kuban Bridgehead" against Soviet attacks. Elite German assault boat troops fight in the Kuban River marshes. The German commerce raider "Thor's" epic voyage to Japan.

*Luftwaffe Finis: The End of the German Air Force. One of the most popular videos in our collection! I produced this original documentary from unedited, silent footage. Color film of top Luftwaffe leaders and pilots taken as they fell into Allied hands at the end of World War II. You'll see startlingly realistic color footage of Herman Goering, Albert Kesselring, Adolf Galland, Hans Ulrich Rudel and many more. Captured aircraft shown include an Me 262, the first jet fighter, and an FW 190. You'll be amazed when you see these color images out of the past.

* Convair B-58 Hustler Supersonic Bomber Wins the Bendix Trophy Restored Color NEW! On March 5th, 1962, Capt Robert G Sauer & his crew in "Tall Man 55" took off from Carswell AFB, Fort Worth, Texas to break three transcontinental speed records in one day, over 4,500 miles in "Operation Heat Rise." The round trip was a total of 4 hours 41 minutes, including refueling, and all three times were transcontinental speed records.

* The Story of the Black Cat PBYs. This restoration was particularly satisfying for me. After many days of research including hours scanning the South West Pacific using Google Earth, the identities of the previously undisclosed secret PBY base shown in this film and the men who flew from it are revealed for the first time in this exclusive release. During World War 2, that info was "Top Secret" and kept from the public. One of the least known stories of the war in the Pacific, these night flying, black painted PBY "VPB" ('Patrol Bombing") squadrons spread destruction and chaos far out of proportion to their small numbers.

* Submarine Warfare in the Pacific. My web site is known for World War 2 aircraft films, but I also love a good sub story. This film was completed shortly after the end of the War and contains rare footage on US submarine operations you won't find anywhere else. I did additional research and added graphics to ID some of the important figures not identified in the original documentary.

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-47 & B-58!

* Building a Bomber - The Martin B-26 Marauder- 1945 NEW! See production of a World War 2 Martin B-26 medium bomber from metal casting through final assembly. Set at the Martin aircraft plant in Marietta Georgia.

* Tank Destroyer Boot Camp -1943 NEW! Restored Color This unique color documentary gives a rare look inside the Camp Hood, TX, tank destroyer troop training school in 1943. Includes up close looks at M 10 Tank Destroyers and camp facilities. Highlights include target practice using field guns and M10s against moving targets, field maneuvers against tanks, live fire exercises, armored infantry assaults and bazooka training.

* River Patrol: US Navy Mekong River Delta Operations in Vietnam - 1967 - Restored Color NEW! I spent restored the color in this US Navy film and am very pleased with the results. The USS Harnett County (LST-821) served as a floating base in the China Sea for PCF swift boat and helicopter patrol operations in the Mekong River Delta during the Vietnam War. The labyrinthine Delta was a hot zone in the war against well organized Viet Cong insurgents, immortalized by the film "Apocalypse Now." This beautifully photographed film is the real thing -- a "slice of life" documentary showing daily operations aboard the Harnett County and exciting action on swift boat river patrols & Huey helicopter gunship ground support missions. Highly recommended!

* John Fords "Under Cover: How to operate behind enemy lines in World War 2 -1943 NEW! This is the first film ever made on how to be a spy in enemy territory produced by a secret intelligence service to train agents. It's not everyday I discover a virtually unknown feature film by an Oscar Winning director, let alone one that contains his only speaking role in a talking picture. Hollywood legend John Ford directed this training film during World War 2 on the art of espionage for the O.S.S (Office of Strategic Services, forerunner of the C.I.A).

* Back Door Gang P-38si n Color Newly discovered color film of the 430th FS, 474th FG, 9th Air Force. From the get go, the 474th was configured as a ground attack unit, but they also provided bomber escort and level bombing, led by Norden bomb sight equipped "Droop Snoots," which are shown here. One of three P-38 squadrons in the 474th, the 430th's call sign was "Back Door," and its planes and pilots are featured in the film in the Spring of 1945 at their base in Florennes, Belgium, a former Luftwaffe night fighter base.

* Hell in Normandy Restored Color NEW! This 1960's era Italian cinema factory "Spaghetti War Movie" has a preposterous plot full of historical inaccuracies, poorly chosen locations, cheap special effects, ham acting, corny badly dubbed dialogue, a sexy Italian actress and features Hollywood B movie star Guy Madison. In other words, what's not to like?

* German Infantry Small Arms -1944 NEW! Captured German arms were used in this World War 2 era US Army training film to familiarize American troops with the weapons of their enemy.(Who knows, maybe they thought they might have to be used in combat if you ran out of ammo.) The 9mm "Schmeisser" MP-40 machine pistol, the 7.92mm MG-34 machine gun, 7.92mm MG 42 machine gun and the 7.92mm 1898K Mauser rifle are all demonstrated.

* B-29s Over North Korea Exclusive original documentary. I created this videos from a recently found reel of silent, unedited and undocumented footage shot by the US Air Force in Korea in August-September, 1950, for a documentary that was never released. The highlight of the film shows an early morning briefing for 19th Bomb Group (28th, 30th and 98th Bomb Squadrons) at Kadena Air Base on Okinawa. Memorable B-29 nose art in full color!

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-47 & B-58!
