World War 2 in the air and beyond on DVDBehind the Scenes


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.

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!

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

NEW
A treasure trove of World War 2 newsreels shown in Germany, occupied counties and countries friendly to the Axis. The pictures tell the story -- German combat cameramen were well known celebrities for good reason. "I regularly watch the cable history channels, but most of this footage is completely new to me or I had only seen brief snippets from it before. From a raucous ready room at a Luftwaffe Night Fighter base to the frozen steppes of Russia, this is a tremendous collection of combat and World War 2 historical footage." Zeno

The Boeing B-47 Stratojet DVD
* Flying the Boeing B-47 New addition!
This comprehensive training film, was produced by the US Air Force to familiarize pilots and aircrew transitioning from prop driven aircraft like the B-29 to the new world of the B-47, the USAF's first jet bomber. You'll see a history of early US jet bomber development starting in 1943, followed by a thorough discussion of the Stratojet's flight characteristics, from pre-flight check through landing
* Stratojet: Meet Your Boeing B-47
You'll see the design, development, and manufacturing of the B-47. Then you'll follow a crew from SAC's McConnell Air Force Base (3250th Combat Crew Training Wing) on a training mission that simulates a night attack on a target in the US. There are some great shots of the Stratojet on the ground and in the air, including night air refueling.
* 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.
* Two extensive B-47 Flight Manuals


* Thunderbolt! New Digitally restored archival print with more than 5-minutes of new content! See 65th FS P-47s in action in Italy. 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. Real fighter base life too. A Classic!
* P-47 Combat Operations Veteran pilots discuss flying missions in all theaters. You'll hear the action described in their own words, including a liberal sprinkling of vintage pilot slang.
* Ramrod to Emden Digitally Restored The 56th Fighter Group was home to P-47 aces like David Schilling, Frances "Gabby" Gabreski, Robert S. Johnson, Fred Christensen, Walker Mahurin, and CO Hubert "Hub" Zemke. See an action packed "ramrod" into Germany.

See and hear how they did in through detailed yet easy to understand charts, information and dramatic film footage showing the growth of the US Air Force.

Report from the Aleutians Starting on June 3, 1942, 6 months after Pearl Harbor, a small Japanese force occupied US territory on the Alaskan islands of Attu and Kiska in the Aleutian chain. It took US Forces a year to dislodge them under harsh arctic conditions. This classic color film, directed and narrated by Academy Award Winner John Huston, shows the first offensive steps of the rapidly expanding Army Air Corps at the dawn of world War 2 in the Pacific. Rare early war color footage includes P-39 Airacobras, the first operational deployment of P-38E Lightning fighters, B-25 Mitchells, Navy PBYs and some of the first missions flown by B-24 Liberator bombers by US forces.

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.
