World War 2 in the air and beyond on DVDArmy Air Corps Behind the Scenes


Our DVDs make memorable gifts! Want to know what it was it like to fly a real P-51 Mustang? Need a present for a vet who flew one or his family? Are you ready to be inspired and uplifted by the exploits of "The Greatest Generation?"

Now you can watch the full, complete, unedited original films from World War 2, the Korean War & the Vietnam War from which virtually all the short clips shown on cable channel documentaries are taken. There's a lot more surviving film than you see on TV or ever imagined!

We have the largest collection of World War2 era aircraft & combat documentary films available anywhere in the world on full screen digital home DVDs. You'll experience everything from pilot training films produced by aircraft manufacturers to rare color documentaries shot in battle by combat cameramen -- and much more. Many of our aircraft DVDs contain complete pilot & technical handbooks with detailed info at no additional charge.
If sold separately, these manuals would double the cost of our DVDs, an exceptional value.

Unlike other historic film publishers, we have digitally restored many of our videos and have supplied footage for programs shown on the History, Discovery and A&E channels, PBS, the BBC and to air museums for video displays. Contact us for more info on our huge stock footage library.

We've moved beyond World War II aircraft. "World War II Classics," now includes outstanding Army, Navy and Marine combat and weapons training films, and we've expanded our post WW2 jet aircraft division into the 1950's and '60s with aircraft & documentary features from Korea & Vietnam.

Our orders ship on the same or next business day after they are received. International orders are welcome. If you live outside of North America our DVDs are not "region limited" and will play on PAL & SECAM players. And if you ever have a problem with one of our videos, we'll replace it for free - guaranteed.

The Boeing B-47 Stratojet DVD
* Flying the Boeing B-47 New addition!
This comprehensive training film, was produced by the US Air Force to familiarize pilots and aircrew transitioning from prop driven aircraft like the B-29 to the new world of the B-47, the USAF's first jet bomber. You'll see a history of early US jet bomber development starting in 1943, followed by a thorough discussion of the Stratojet's flight characteristics, from pre-flight check through landing
* Stratojet: Meet Your Boeing B-47
You'll see the design, development, and manufacturing of the B-47. Then you'll follow a crew from SAC's McConnell Air Force Base (3250th Combat Crew Training Wing) on a training mission that simulates a night attack on a target in the US. There are some great shots of the Stratojet on the ground and in the air, including night air refueling.
* B-47 Combat Maneuvers In 1954 the Air Force conducted a series of tests that showcased the B-47's outstanding agility, doing “toss bombing.” The aircraft would approach the target low and at high speed, pull up sharply, open bomb bay doors, use momentum to literally fling the bomb towards the target and then execute the rest of a half loop Immelman turn so that they were flying back in the opposite direction. Seeing the big B-47 execute this maneuver (and barrel rolls too!) is truly memorable. Cameras located all over the aircraft give unique views during the test flights.
* Two extensive B-47 Flight Manuals

*The Story of the Flying Wing
Northrop Aircraft produced this information film to extol the Wing's virtues and answer her critics. The result is a film that gives a compelling overview of the principles of advantages of the Wing design, delivered by Northrop's Director of Engineering, Harrison F. Burke. You'll see color film of the jet powered wing in operation, supplemented by an extensive use of instructive animations.
*XB-70 Valkyrie Flight Test Program
This film, produced by North American Aviation, gives a concise overview of the early phases of the XB-70A aircraft design, construction, development and testing. You'll see Phase one & two flight tests and "proof loading" structural tests. The use and testing of "folded wing tips" and retraction of the "windshield ramp"in supersonic flight is discussed in detail along with the innovative air induction system. On the17th flight, on Oct 14th, 1965, the Valkyrie breaks the Mach 3 barrier and flies at over 70,0000 feet.
*XB-70A Valkyrie: Phase One Flight Testing
The critical first four flight tests of the XB-70A over 34 days at Edwards AFB are shown in detail culminating in the aircrafts first supersonic flight. As might be expected, these early f lights included some dramatic moments, including an in flight engine flame out and one of the landing gear bursting into flames during touch down. But, as mission chief test pilot Col Al White says, "if there were no problems during testing, you wouldn't need test pilots or test flights.

This film was developed by personnel at the Army Air Corps top secret Wright Field flight test facility to give pilots the low down on what to expect if they joined their aircraft testing program.

. This rare color film shows the 7002 being tested by Consolidated in 1948 at the Muroc Test Base in California. It's hard to imagine a more influential aircraft, as 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.
* X-15 1960 (1960, COLOR, 27:00) This documentary was produced by North American Aviation to show the development of the X-15 rocket plane.

NEW
A treasure trove of World War 2 newsreels shown in Germany, occupied counties and countries friendly to the Axis. The pictures tell the story -- German combat cameramen were well known celebrities for good reason. "I regularly watch the cable history channels, but most of this footage is completely new to me or I had only seen brief snippets from it before. From a raucous ready room at a Luftwaffe Night Fighter base to the frozen steppes of Russia, this is a tremendous collection of combat and World War 2 historical footage." Zeno
