* Thunderbolt! (Color, 1944, 47:00)
5/2/2010 Exclusive Special Edition - New digitally restored video from recently released archival print with more than 5 minutes of additional content & directional stereo sound. See the difference here.
"Thunderbolt!" chronicles the exploits of the P-47 Thunderbolt pilots of the "Fighting Cocks" of the 65th Fighter squadron, 57th Fighter Group. New -- additional footage of 64th FS "Black Scorpions," 66th FS "Terminators" and Free French P-47s. Based on the island of Corsica off the northwest coast of the Italian boot, the 57th FG flew from behind the enemy's flank. As part of "Operation Strangle," they continuously attacked highways, bridges, ammo dumps, railroads and just about anything that moved to choke off the flow of supplies to the Axis front line. This film not only features exciting one-of-a-kind P-47 combat footage, it also shows day-to-day life on a MTO forward air base, including vintage pilot slang."This has to be finest combination of great photography, a hard bitten, realistic script, stirring music, powerful narration and full bore Pratt & Whitney R-2800-59W Double Wasp radial engine roar I have seen or heard in a World War II documentary. Truly memorable and highly recommended. Our new digitally restored print is a huge leap in quality with great new additional content." Zeno
* P-47 Combat Operations (1945, Black & White, 16:30)
This film was shown to fledgling "Jug "pilots before they shipped out to forward air bases around the world. This engrossing video features a half dozen real pilots flying real missions in a variety of roles in all theater of war, including very rare footage of Thunderbolt napalm attacks against Japanese pill boxes in the Pacific. You'll hear the action described in their own words, including a liberal sprinkling of vintage pilot slang.
* Ramrod to Emden Digitally Restored Print (1945, B&W, 34:00)

The 56th Fighter Group (made up of the 61, 62 & 63 squadrons) was one of the most storied Air Corps units of World War II. Home to aces like David Schilling (22 kills), Frances "Gabby" Gabreski (28), Robert S. Johnson (27), Fred Christensen (21.5), Walker Mahurin (21), and CO Hubert "Hub" Zemke (18), the 56th blazed an early trail across the skies of the ETO in their massive but deadly P-47 Thunderbolts. "Ramrod to Emden" is the action packed story of their Dec 11, 1943 bomber escort mission (aka "a ramrod") to Emden, Germany.
112-page Republic P-47N Thunderbolt pilot's training manual in .pdf file format with photos, systems diagrams, gunsight operation, tactics, procedures & and much more. The "N" was the final variant of the P-47, a "Super Thunderbolt" developed for long range operations in the Pacific.

Pilot's manual viewable on computer DVD player. Don't have a DVD player on your computer? We can put the manual on a separate CD-ROM! (Click here for info.)
