Description Our DVD Specs
* Flight Characteristics of the Grumman F6F "Hellcat"
(1944, B&W, 19:26)
The Navy's workhorse fighter/bomber, faster and more durable than a Zero, the Hellcat secured air superiority for the USN.This step-by-step F6F pilot training film was produced by the US Navy during World War II.
* Recognition of the Japanese Zero Fighter (B&W, 1944, 20:00)
Lieutenant "Jimmy Saunders" (Ronald Reagan) learns how to tell a P-40 from Japanese A6M Zero, the hard way. (That's a very angry Craig Stevens aka "Peter Gunn" on the receiving end.) Contains plenty of interesting info about what US pilots were told about Japan's most produced and feared fighter and how to spot it. Includes seldom seen footage of a captured Zero doing spectacular aerobatics.
* Spins & Stalls (B&W, 15:00, 1944) Why they happen & what to do about them. Featturing an F6F & more.
* Don't Kill Your Friends -- Range Safety for fixed gun aircraft (B&W, 1944, 15:00) New
Believe it or not, "Dilbert" cartoons started in World War II, and, no they didn't feature those poor shmuck's stuck in corporate quick sand. The first "Dilbert" cartoons were created by U.S. Navy Lt. Richard Osborn, based on the Navy flier name for operational errors --"dillies." The "Don't be a Dilbert" warning and character was featured on a wide variety of posters promoting safety As played here by "Dead End Kid" Huntz Hall Dilbert is a deadly combination of over confidence and bumbling incompetence who wreaks havoc among Naval personnel and innocent civilians. A nice feature of this film is a good look inside and outside the Navy F4F/FM carrier fighters used in training. In this humorous, yet deadly serious US Navy training film, Dilbert fearlessly provides a string of negative examples of what not to do during aerial gunnery practice.
