World War 2 Allied Aviation News Volume 3
British & Commonwealth Air Forces 1942-1945

See the RAF & Allied services in the air and behind the scenes in these exciting and informative films, all produced during World War 2.

RAF Air Front (B&W, 65:00 Restored footage) This series of RAF films documents literally dozens of missions flown by RAF 2nd Tactical Air Force and Bomber Command over Northern Europe and Germany from the Spring of 1944 through the last days of the War in May, 1945. In fact, there are so many missions that space doesn't nearly permit listing them all here. Suffice it to say that there is more non stop air action in an hour plus of film than we have ever seen before in one place. No talking heads – just planes, bullets & bombs supplemented by maps showing mission targets. There are amazing attack sequences often shot right down on the deck by brave combat cameramen. And, unlike many films of this period, individual units, dates & specific targets are often identified

Just a few of the many highlights: Hawker Typhoon & Tempest fighter/bombers fly “Mandolin” ops attacking tanks, rail complexes, vehicles & targets of opportunity with canon, rocket and bombs, including crucial support for the D-Day invasion; Mosquitoes conduct daring low level precision attacks on high value targets like Gestapo headquarters and high ranking officer billets in chateau, Bristol Beaufighters and Mosquitoes pouncing on enemy shipping along the coast of occupied Europe with torpedo, rockets & bombs, A-20 Boston attack bombers on tree top skimming “Rhubarb” & 'Ramrod” missions over the Low Countries, RAF B-25 Mitchells on 'Circus” missions hitting factories, munitions dumps, refineries, troop concentrations in fast moving low & medium bombing attacks, heavy Lancaster hitting hard targets like concrete U-Boat pens and coastal fortification by day and night missions into Germany against cities like Brunswick and Konigsburg where incendiary bombs quickly spread fires that literally light up the street grid like a road map – simultaneously fascinating and horrific. Late in the war, you'll see Lancaster's drop massive 22,000 llb bombs on fortified port entrances and critical briges & viaducts, knocking them out with one blow, and just days before the end of the war, Lancasters attack on Hitlers “Eagle's Nest” lair at Berchtesgaden, shown as it happened.
