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 f
lew 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!
FREE B-25 DVD
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.

* 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.
