World War2 in the air and beyond on DVD

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
.
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.

Record Breaker: The B-58 Hustler Story DVD Volume 2
* B-58 Hustler First Test Flight On Veterans Day, Nov 11th, 1956 Convair's revolutionary delta wing B-58 "Hustler" supersonic bomber took to the skies for the first time -- and you'll see it all in this memorable color film
* B-58 Hustler: Swift, Capable, Versatile, Operational! This a film report from the US Air Force on the progress of the B-58 Program was produced by the Convair Division of General Dynamics in January 1961. Highlights include B-58 crews scrambling from their '58 Chevy to get their Hustler airborne; the 18th Sept, 1959 low level capability demonstration flight from Texas to California averaging over 600 kts at altitudes below 500', and 43rd Bomb Wing B-58s win SAC's 1960 Combat Competition, defeating 24 other aircraft in both high & low level bombing classifications. Outstanding color B-58 Hustler footage throughout!
* Airplane 11: The First B-58 Trainer The first trainer version of the Hustler, the TB-58, was delivered by General Dynamics to the US Air Force in August, 1960, the first of eight R&D aircraft (this was "aircraft 11" in the series) converted for that purpose. The biggest change involved converting the Bomber/Navigator station (2nd seat aft) to a  pilot/instructors compartment with instrumentation and controls.Highlights include great footage of the colorfully painted TB 58 training version in operation.
* Open Road III: B-58 MITO Tests  During the depths of the Cold War, SAC bombers had only 15 to 20-minutes to get airborne between the launch of enemy missiles and their arrival at US targets. That meant that the ability get US air forces on their way quickly and efficiently was absolutely essential for survivability, striking power and deterrence.  A critical element in this quick response was "MITO" - "Minimum Interval Take-Off."  This involved determining the optimum interval between the launching aircraft to achieve the fastest possible deployment. There's some beautiful B-58 take-off footage here.
* B-58 Ejection System Development The B-58 was the first aircraft capable of operating at sustained supersonic speeds at very high altitudes.  That posed new problems for crew ejection and survivability. This film, produced by General Dynamics and the US Air Force, shows the unique challenges in ejecting from the B-56 and the solutions that were developed over time.
* Escape and Survive Developed by B-58 capsule subcontractor and ejection seat pioneer Stanley Aviation, this film focuses on the design, manufacture and testing of the capsule itself.
* Convair TB-58A "Hustler" Flight Manual
 
Rare supplementary manual for the TB-58A, the training version of the Hustler.

The B-29 DVD Volume 2
* B-29s Over North Korea: The 19th Bomb Group Attacks Bridges Near Sinanju 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. Reminiscent a scene from the World War 2 classic "Target for Today," the briefing is for mission against the all important rail bridges near Sinaju Station, North Korea and the port of Nampo, as part of the preparation for the Inchon landings and the breakout from the Pusan perimeter. And as a special bonus, we've added "19th BG Color Nose Art Scrap Book," a collection of remarkable Kodachrome slides taken of Korean War 19th BG B-29s
* B-29 Flight Engineer Excellent B-29 footage here, showing the aircraft in detail, inside and out. Systems management on the very complex (and often unreliable) B-29 was a critical function.
*The Last Bomb Outtakes Reel From the vaults of the National Archives comes a newly discovered reel of outtakes, expanded scenes, and new footage from the Academy Award winning World War 2 B-29 classic, "The Last Bomb." And there's a big bonus for fighter fans. The section of the original film that shows P-51 Mustang squadrons ranging over the Japanese mainland seeking targets of opportunity is significantly expanded and in very good condition, yielding some of the most exciting color gun camera footage we have seen from World War 2.
* Birth of the B-29 was produced during World War 2 to introduce the American public to the fabulous new Boeing B-29 Superfortress. The film shows how the war against Japan necessitated the development of a super long range bomber that could strike the Japanese Empire from distant bases in Japan, India, and the Marianas Islands. A highlight of the film focuses on a tour of a giant B-29 plant, showing all aspects of production.
* Air Strikes Against Japan
was produced after the War using archival footage, complimented with additional maps and graphics. It gives a clear overall picture of the Allied air offensive against the Japanese home islands.

This manual is known as the "B-17 Bible" for good reason.

Four films and two flight manuals on one DVD
*Initial Flight of YB-49
This film was produced by the US Air Force and Northrop to show the first the test flights flights of the YB-49 Flying Wing at Northrop' s Hawthorne, California facility, introducing it to the American public for the first time.This aircraft is revealingly shown at all angles, including up close on the ground and in flight.
*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.
