World War 2 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 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 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.
Plus
*
How NOT to Fly the B-29 12 pages in Adobe Acrobat .pdf file format. This neat little booklet is part of a series that was produced by the Army Air Corps to alert pilots to the causes and possible solutions for recent stateside B-29 accidents.
* B-29 Pilots' and Flight Engineers' Training manual (51-126-6) 12/15/1945 194 pages with color highlights in Adobe Acrobat .pdf file format. The final and definitive flight manual for the B-29 produced during World War 2. Extensive documentation includes charts, diagrams and performance index.
* Flight Operating Instructions USAF Model YB-29J Aircraft 125 pages with color highlights in Adobe Acrobat .pdf file format. The YB-29J was a short series of 6 aircraft produced by Boeing to test upgraded engines and other enhancements designed to improve B-29 performance and reliability.


Three films & Pilot's Manual
B-52: Vietnam - Operations Out of U Tapao Air Base, Thailand
The focus of this dramatic film is an "Arc Light" bombing mission flown by Pilot Captain George Dietrich and the crew of B-52 D "075," 4258th Strategic Wing out of U Tapao, Thailand in support of the besieged marine base at Khe Sahn in Vietnam in 1968. 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.
* Boeing B-52D Flight Manual (1,100 pages in printable Adobe Acrobat .pdf file format) Fitted to carry a maximum conventional bomb load, the B-52D flew the bulk of strategic bombing missions in the Vietnam War. 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.
* The 98th Bomb Group: Liberators Over Africa (1943, B&W, 27:00) New Exclusive Recently discovered footage shows Medal of Honor winner Col. John R. "Killer " Kane and the men of the 98th Bomb Group in the Summer of 1943, shortly before the heroic, costly Ploesti mission, at their desert base in Benghasi/Benina, Libya. There's an unexpected gem too. Soon after the Axis surrender in Tunisia, 9th combat cameraman Jim Bray hitched a ride on a  B-24 and filmed all the major North African targets the 98th had hit from the air, from El Alemein to Tunis. 
* Liberators Over Europe, 1942-45 New  From Ploesti to Berlin, you'll discover memorable Liberator scenes not not found anywhere else, including pulse pounding air attacks. You'll see B-24 crews up close too along with their ships.
* 1st Air Division  Bombing Highlights 1944-45 New Ball turret gunners were given 16mm cameras and told to film what they saw on bombing missions over the Third Reich.You'll see raids on Berlin, Luneberg, the U-Boat pens at Bremen, Muenster, Ingolstadt, Regensburg, Dresden and many more cities.
Bonus  Captured Luftwaffe film shows the downing of 15 US bombers, one at a time, by FW 190 fighters.

* Seek, Strike & Destroy: The Camp Hood Tank Destroyer Training School (1943, B&W,10:00) The film begins with rare footage of Gen. A.D. Bruce open in the brand new tank destroyer training facility at the just completed Camp (later Fort) Hood army base, near Killeen,TX. The Army's first tank destroyer, which is featured here, was the “T12/M3 Gun Motor Carriage,” a modified M-3 half track with a 75mm M1897A4 gun mounted in the rear, which was a a adaptation of the quick firing “French 75.”
* Tank Destroyer 3" Gun Motor Carriage M10 The M10 was the much more advanced successes to the half track T12/M3. Based on a M4 Sherman Tank chassis, it mounted a high velocity 3' (90mm) gun, which, like the German 88, was an adaptation of an anti-aircraft gun.
* Ordnance Repairs & Field Expedients for Tracked Vehicles This is a treasure trove of inside, down & dirty info on how tanks and other armored vehicles were kept rolling & overcame a multitude of obstacles in the field during World War 2.'"Field Expedients' were 'Anything you can do think of to keep your vehicle rolling.' in other words, it's a show case of good American Know How solving problems in novel and innovative ways.
* American Armored Force You'll see a strategic tactical analysis of the use of tanks armor in the Korean War from the the initial attack by the North through cessation of hostilities Next there's a discussion of the role and of tanks in modern warfare including how armor and infantry work in concert during an advance.

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
