Naval Areal Tactics featuring the F2H-2 Banshee Color Produced by the Navy Department during the Korean War, this unique film is of compelling interest for two reasons. It features truly outstanding color footage of F2H-2 Banshee fighters operating singly and in squadron formation, dancing agilely among towering cumulus clouds. Second, it opens a fascinating window on US Navy carrier launched fighter operations and tactics from the time of the Korean War.
Meet the McDonnell F2H Produced by McDonnell aircraft, this film served as an introduction to their newest fighter the FH2, and details it's numerous improvements over the companies first jet fighter, the FH-1 Phantom. You'll get a walk around of the aircraft and see her doing spectacular aerobatics. Then you'll get a look inside the McDonnell assembly line to see FH2 construction and inside a Westinghouse engine plant to see production and testing of her compact yet powerful J34 axial flow turbojets. Finally, you'll see her high and low speed performance capabilities, including mock carrier landings and outstanding single engine performance.
 Carrier Action Off Korea This film gives an historical summary of the role played by carrier forces in the Korean War, as told through dramatic, first person documentary footage of carrier operations and gun camera film.

* Profile of a Flight Test Pilot
This film was developed by personnel at the Army Air Corps top secret Wright Field flight test facility to give pilots the low down on what to expect if they joined their aircraft testing program.
But, there is much more. You also get a look behind the curtain at Wright Field at some of the rarest and most bizarre aircraft produced during World War II, including one-off prototypes.
* Research Test of Convair Model 7002/XF92A Airplane at U.S. Air Force Test Base Muroc, California
This airplane was the world's first jet aircraft to fly using the radical delta-wing configuration pioneered by Germany's Dr. Alexander Lippisch
. This rare color film shows the 7002 being tested by Consolidated in 1948 at the Muroc Test Base in California. It's hard to imagine a more influential aircraft, as the delta wing was not only adopted in the Convair's F-102 and B-58, but also in a long series of other US, British, French, and Russian designs.
* X-15 1960 (1960, COLOR, 27:00) This documentary was produced by North American Aviation to show the development of the X-15 rocket plane.

Record Breaker: The B-58 Hustler Story DVD Volume 1
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.
* B-58 Bendix Trophy Race 1962 (Color) On March 5th, 1962, Capt Robert G Sauer & his crew in "Tall Man 55" took off from Carswell AFB, Fort Worth, Texas to break three transcontinental speed records in one day, over 4,500 miles -- in "Operation Heat Rise."
* B-58 Low Altitude Bombing Capability (Color) This film focuses on the low altitude sections of "Tall Man 55s" record breaking March 5th flight. Great views of the Hustler at very low altitude from inside & outside the cockpit at Mach two.
* The Bleriot Trophy (Color) In 1930 the French aviation pioneer established a prize for the first aircraft to average over 2,000 kph for thirty minutes. See how B-58 Hustler "Firefly" took the prize.
* Champion of Champions (Color) Isn't that the legendary star and war hero James Stewart climbing out of the pilot's seat of the B-58 that just touched down? "Yup!" -- and he's ready willing and able to give you his first hand impressions of an aircraft he is obviously has fallen in love with.
DVD includes two B-58 flight manuals with over 450 pages of detailed information.

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

You'll see color film of the jet powered wing in operation, supplemented by an extensive use of instructive animations.
*XB-70 Valkyrie Flight Test Program
This film, produced by North American Aviation, gives a concise overview of the early phases of the XB-70A aircraft design, construction, development and testing. You'll see Phase one & two flight tests and "proof loading" structural tests. The use and testing of "folded wing tips" and retraction of the "windshield ramp"in supersonic flight is discussed in detail along with the innovative air induction system.

*XB-70A Valkyrie: Phase One Flight Testing
The critical first four flight tests of the XB-70A over 34 days at Edwards AFB are shown in detail culminating in the aircrafts first supersonic flight. As might be expected, these early f lights included some dramatic moments, including an in flight engine flame out and one of the landing gear bursting into flames during touch down. But, as mission chief test pilot Col Al White says, "if there were no problems during testing, you wouldn't need test pilots or test flights.

Record Breaker: The B-58 Hustler Story DVD Volume 2
* B-58 Hustler First Test Flight On Veterans Day, Nov 11th, 1956 Convair's revolutionary delta wing B-58 "Hustler" supersonic bomber took to the skies for the first time -- and you'll see it all in this memorable color film
* B-58 Hustler: Swift, Capable, Versatile, Operational! This a film report from the US Air Force on the progress of the B-58 Program was produced by the Convair Division of General Dynamics in January 1961. Highlights include B-58 crews scrambling from their '58 Chevy to get their Hustler airborne; the 18th Sept, 1959 low level capability demonstration flight from Texas to California averaging over 600 kts at altitudes below 500', and 43rd Bomb Wing B-58s win SAC's 1960 Combat Competition, defeating 24 other aircraft in both high & low level bombing classifications. Outstanding color B-58 Hustler footage throughout!
* Airplane 11: The First B-58 Trainer The first trainer version of the Hustler, the TB-58, was delivered by General Dynamics to the US Air Force in August, 1960, the first of eight R&D aircraft (this was "aircraft 11" in the series) converted for that purpose. The biggest change involved converting the Bomber/Navigator station (2nd seat aft) to a  pilot/instructors compartment with instrumentation and controls.Highlights include great footage of the colorfully painted TB 58 training version in operation.
* Open Road III: B-58 MITO Tests  During the depths of the Cold War, SAC bombers had only 15 to 20-minutes to get airborne between the launch of enemy missiles and their arrival at US targets. That meant that the ability get US air forces on their way quickly and efficiently was absolutely essential for survivability, striking power and deterrence.  A critical element in this quick response was "MITO" - "Minimum Interval Take-Off."  This involved determining the optimum interval between the launching aircraft to achieve the fastest possible deployment. There's some beautiful B-58 take-off footage here.
* B-58 Ejection System Development The B-58 was the first aircraft capable of operating at sustained supersonic speeds at very high altitudes.  That posed new problems for crew ejection and survivability. This film, produced by General Dynamics and the US Air Force, shows the unique challenges in ejecting from the B-56 and the solutions that were developed over time.
* Escape and Survive Developed by B-58 capsule subcontractor and ejection seat pioneer Stanley Aviation, this film focuses on the design, manufacture and testing of the capsule itself.

Six Color Films

* Man and the FBN: The US Navy deploys its first nuclear Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarines (

USS George Washington (SSBN-598) –the lead ship of US Navy's first class of Fleet Ballistic Missile submarines - was the first operational nuclear-powered strategic multi-missile under water launch capable submarine in the World. With 16 Polaris A-1 missiles which had a range of 1,000 miles it entered service in December 1959 and conducted the first active patrol November 1960-January 1961. This fascinating film shows the story in graphic detail of the development, construction, testing and deployment of both the revolutionary new subs and their missiles.

* Destroyermen (1960s,Color,15:00) This is a rare up close and personal look at daily life aboard US Navy destroyers on duty with the 6th fleet in the Mediterranean in the early 1960s. Featured ships include USS Bordelon (DD-881), USS Strong (DD-758), and USS Gearing (DD-710). You'll see a wide range of activities including a submarine alert, gunfire drill including shots inside the 5. gun turret, engine room operations, refueling at sea, and liberty ashore in Athens, Greece. A memorable color snap snapshot of a bygone era.

* Tracking the Threat: Anti Submarine Warfare at the Height of the Cold War This is an amazing time capsule that could have come right out of the pages of Tom Clancey's classic thriller, “The Hunt for the Red October.” In this memorable recreation, a US Navy Carrier Task Force detects and tracks a Soviet sub in the North Atlantic. You'll see all aspects of the operation from the high tech Tactical Command Centers aboard the Carrier USS America and Destroyer USS Spruance (DDG-111), to P-3 Orion turbo props out of Keflavik Iceland and carrier launched S-3 Vikings dropping and monitoring sonobuoy fields, to Destroyers deploying towed arrays

* Laser Weapons for the Fleet The Vietnam War posed a new challenge for American attack aircraft: how to deliver payloads with great precision against hotly defended targets like bridges in North Vietnam without exposing planes & crews to withering AAA fire during traditional low altitude dive bombing runs. The answer was a new generation of “smart” weapons systems employing laser beams, TV transmission or a combination of both. This report focus on the development, evolution and deployment of laser based systems by both Navy Air and Marine Corps ground units. The film covers the basics of applied laser technology and the evolution and deployment of laser weapons systems from shoulder mounted laser designators to advanced systems like those on A-6Es Intruder bombers

* Sea Mine Warfare (1968,26:00,Color) Sea mines are one of the oldest naval weapons system still in use for very good reasons: they're relatively cheap, easy to deploy and perform a a wide variety of important functions including blockading harbors, destroying ships at sea, blocking sea lanes and psychological warfare. This comprehensive film gives a short history of the development of both sea mine technology and the mine sweepers used to detect and destroy them from the mid nineteenth century, through World War 1 and 2, with a detailed case study of their role in delaying the the landings at Wonsan in the Korean war, plus more modern deployments. You'll learn about the various kinds of mines including contact, pressure sensitive, acoustic and more and their tactical and strategic uses. You'll also see the various counter measure used by mine sweepers to detect &n explode mines, featuring USN sweepers Pinnacle (MSO 462), Sagacity (MSO 469) Agile (MSO 421) and Ozark (MCS 2) in action. This is an inside view of a widely used but little known technology you wont see anywhere else.

* The U.S. Navy from Vietnam to the 21st Century This is an excellent broad stroke report on the evolution of U.S. Navy strategic doctrine and deployment from the Vietnam war through Operation Desert Storm. You'll see how the Navy adapted to the unique challenges presented by the Vietnam War, followed by post war down sizing and then dramatic growth under the Reagan administration's “600 Ship Navy.” Of particular interest are the evolving role of aircraft carriers, the rebirth of the battleship and the introduction of a new generation of smart weapons like the Tomahawk cruise missile, used extensively in the Gulf War
