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.

Essentially unchanged from World War 2, the Wisconsin provided fire support for amphibious landings and inland battles, hurling 16 inch shells 20 miles. The Wisconsin was a floating city at work.

Two exciting films showing the isolation and neutralization of the mighty Japanese island fortress
*
Mission to Rabaul (New! - Digital Audio & Video restoration) This dramatic, visually high impact documentary film shows some of the most memorable, exciting, and extensive footage of 5th Air Force B-25G bombers conducting tree top level attacks with machine guns and delayed action bombs to come out of World War 2 .The first step in the reduction of Rabaul was the seizure of a string of Japanese bases along the Northeast coast of New Guinea. The film focuses on the decisive and revolutionary impact of the air component in the strategy, including high & low level attacks, parachute drops, and resupply, accompanied by a magnificent musical score drawn from Holst's "The Planets.'
* Attack! The Battle for New Britain
Stage two of the isolation and reduction of the Japanese fortress of Rabaul was the seizure of key bases at the opposite (Western) end of the 370-mile long island of New Britain, cutting enemy supply lines and providing advance airfields for continuing attacks on the stronghold. You'll see all aspects of the invasion, including planning, training, air attacks, amphibious assaults, and the intense jungle fighting to secure objectives by Marine and US Army forces. And there's more of those exciting low level B-25 strikes!

You'll ride along with them in their B-52 and see them relax back at the base.
Operation Sky Watch NEW!
This is a time capsule from the height of the Cold War. In this detailed reenactment, Major Paul Dobbins and the crew of B-52G “Buzz Saw 48” are put on “Airborne Alert,” the highest stage of readiness during a crisis for SAC's strategic bombers in the early 1960s. Armed with a pair of nuclear tipped “Hound Dog” AGM-28 long range supersonic missiles, a load of A-Bombs and ADM-20 “Quail” jet powered decoys designed to fool enemy radars.

B-52 Landing Analysis
This step by step instructional film, produced by the US Air Force, is all about how to land the big B-52 "Buff." A landing is shown in detail, along with a number of "right way-wrong way" examples.
Flight Without a Fin This remarkable training film is the result of an unplanned accident. A B-52H, on loan from the Air Force to Boeing Aircraft for a series of performance tests, was hit by an extraordinary 10 second "microburst" of turbulence on a low level sortie over Colorado that literally ripped off most of its tail fin.. See how they brought it home.

This very comprehensive manual with color highlights includes a thorough desciption of the aircraft, normal and emergency procedures, operating limitations, flight characteristics, systems operations, crew duties and much more.

Air Reconnaissance, Combat Counter- Intelligence, Camouflage & Espionage in World War 2
NEW!

Six films plus a special bonus feature!

Air Reconnaissance and Observation: Roles, Capabilities and Limitations Airborne intelligence gathering was an essential aid to land and sea combat operations in World War 2 This film was produced by the Army Signal Corps as an introduction for Airborne Observers, including visual reporting, photographic and artillery spotting. Their activities are shown in detail. Skills that had to be developed included navigation, map orientation, radio communications, target identification, photography and gunnery.

Combat Counter-Intelligence Narrated by Hollywood legend Lloyd BridgesThis film opens with a 1940s version of “Spygate.” A scout surreptitiously films from the stands a quarterback's little “tells” that give away the play he is about to run. The scout's team, who is an underdog, uses this intelligence to win their next game against him. The lesson for World War 2 Servicemen: “We must avoid “giveaways!'” The film then segues to a series of engrossing dramatized examples of US infantrymen in both World Wars doing just that.

Camouflage (This film is a treasure. It's one of the best examples of the theory and practice of the art of camouflaging military targets from air observation & attack that you'll find anywhere, presented in a highly entertaining Disney style full color animation supplemented by live action film. Hosted by “Yehudi the Chameleon,” the action is centered around a P-39 Airacobra base in the Pacific and is chocked full of useful information & “how-tos.”

Private SNAFU: Spies! If bumbling Private SNAFU sounds like Bugs Bunny in this entertaining short, it's because it's the legendary voice of Mel Blanc, who did Bugs and many other cartoon characters. The inept Private SNAFU appeared in a series of cartoons showing G.I.s what NOT to do in a variety of situations – in this case, keeping military secrets.

Sucker Bait “Loose lips sick ships,” was a warning seen everywhere during World War 2 in America. In this highly dramatic film, starring Richard Carlson with Donna Reed, Barry Nelson and Esther Williams, unfortunately that comes true. The framework of the film is a lecture to a freshman class for spies in Germany who will soon be sent to the USA. As the cynical, sardonic instructor says, “Here is an incident to illustrate how our enemies talk, think and are criminally careless.” The mission in the case study is to discover convoy sailing times & routes so U-Boats can sink them.

Don't Talk! ) his film was part of MGMs “Crime Does Not Pay'” series showing FBI agents at work. In this case, the G-Men are called in to investigate an explosion at an important defense plant. You'll see them use then state of the art photographic, forensic and chemical analysis to hunt down the perpetrators, in this case a German espionage ring centered around intelligence gathered by Beulah, a waitress in “The Elite Cafe,” where plant workers congregate.

Special Bonus Feature

The Army Air Forces First Motion Picture Unit (1944,B&W, 21:00) One of the most common questions I've been asked about the World War 2 aviation training films like the ones on this DVD is ”Who made these?” The answer is the subject this fascinating report, “The Army Air Forces First Motion Picture Unit.” A massive Hollywood studio in Culver City California was turned over solely for producing these training and information films, staffed by experienced men & women enlisted into the Army from all the trades necessary to produce a top flight motion picture. You'll see writers, actors directors, editors, set designers, props, sound technicians, carpenters, sculptors, wardrobe designers & tailors, cartoon animators, special effects wizards, air & ground cinematographers, a motor pool for on location shooting trips, miniature model production, a full orchestra and more, going about their highly specialized tasks.

The 1st Division – In July 1965, the “Big Red 1" was the first division sized American unit to be sent to Vietnam. This film gives a year by year account of the divisions actions fought from landing through their departure in 1970.

The 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment “The Black Horse Regiment” was a uniquely independent unit, functioning as an armored fist, re-enforcing other units in battle and in a wide variety of other roles including convoy escort through enemy territory and jungle clearing. The 4th Infantry Division The “I Vee Men” arrived in Vietnam in the the Summer of 1966. Part of II Corps, they were soon carving out their base of operations at Dragon Mountain, near Pleiku, and fighting in the mountains & jungles of the Central Highlands.
The 9
th Infantry Division 'The Old Reliables” were deployed in Vietnam in 1967 to IV Corps in Southern South Vietnam. In conjunction with the US Navy, as part of “The Mobile Riverine Force, their area of operations were the watery swamps, rivers and rice paddies of the vast Mekong River Delta.

NEW!
* Profile of a Flight Test Pilot
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.
But, there is much more. You also get a look behind the curtain at Wright Field at some of the rarest and most bizarre aircraft produced during World War II, including one-off prototypes.
* Research Test of Convair Model 7002/XF92A Airplane at U.S. Air Force Test Base Muroc, California
This airplane was the world's first jet aircraft to fly using the radical delta-wing configuration pioneered by Germany's Dr. Alexander Lippisch
. 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. The legendary test pilot, Scott Crossfield is at the controls. The test site is once again Edwards Air Force Base. There is some beautiful color footage of X-15 flights here as well as scenes of support, development and construction.
* X-15 1961 Annual Report (1961, COLOR, 18:00) The X-15 program really takes off in a record breaking year with Joe Walker, Scott Crossfield, Niel Armstrong and other legendary test pilots at the controls, soaring past Mach 3.
