World War 2 in the air and beyond on DVDParatroopers!


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.

Winning Your Wings This rousing recruiting film was designed to show the many benefits of joining the Air Corps.The film shows that joining the Air Corps provides a quick path to non com and high paying officer status and an advanced training program that would prove beneficial after the War. The film points out that every U.S. Air Force bombardier, navigator and pilot was an officer (a sore point with the RAF)
Cadet Classification Narrated by Lt. Ronald Reagan. Most young men who joined the Air Corps, wanted to be a pilot, but was up to the the training schools to determine where they made the best fit, "Bombardier, Navigator or Pilot."
Wings Up 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, Fla.There was a lot more to becoming an officer than learning how to fly
Record Breaker: The B-58 Hustler Story DVD Volume 1
A pilot once said of the B-58
, "She looked like she was breaking the sound barrier just sitting on the tarmac." The B-58 wasn't just one of the fastest bombers of her day, she was one of the fastest military planes period. In the early 1960s the B-58 gained 14 speed and performance records, many previously held by Soviet aircraft.
* B-58 Bendix Trophy Race 1962 (Color) 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."
* B-58 Low Altitude Bombing Capability (Color) This film focuses on the low altitude sections of "Tall Man 55s" record breaking March 5th flight. Great views of the Hustler at very low altitude from inside & outside the cockpit at Mach two.
* The Bleriot Trophy (Color) In 1930 the French aviation pioneer established a prize for the first aircraft to average over 2,000 kph for thirty minutes. See how B-58 Hustler "Firefly" took the prize.

DVD includes two B-58 flight manuals with over 450 pages of detailed information.

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.

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.
