World War 2 U.S. Navy Aviation Machinist Mate NEW! Restored Color You'll see Prop Mechanics, Carburetor Mechanics, Instrument Specialists and Flight Engineers at work, repairing & servicing a wide variety of aircraft including like the SBD Dauntless dive bomber, Vought OS2U Kingfisher catapult scout plane, four-engined Consolidated PB2Ys & more!


Tracking the Threat ASW in the Cold War. New Restored Color. 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 P3 Orion turbo props out of Keflavik Iceland and carrier launched S3 Vikings dropping and monitoring sonobuoy fields, to Destroyers deploying towed arrays .


The Thunderbolts: Ramrod to Emden. Restored. 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 story of the Dec 11, 1943 bomber escort mission (aka "a ramrod") to Emden, Germany.


The Story of the Black Cat PBYs EXCLUSIVE EDITION! Originally designed primarily as a reconnaissance and antisubmarine amphibious patrol plane, the big twin engined PBY Catalina's super long range, all weather capability, capacity to lug both bombs and radar, ability to loiter for hours hunting convoys and operate from anywhere in the Pacific, made it an ideal naval night attack bomber. One of the least known stories of the war in the Pacific, these black painted PBY "VPB" ('Patrol Bombing") squadrons spread destruction and chaos far out of proportion to their relatively small numbers.


Air Operations in Lae-Salamaua on New Guinea This action packed film covers a key battle of the oft overlooked 1943 New Guinea campaign in the South Pacific. General Douglas MacArthur and his staff put together a brilliant combined arms strategy that utilized Air Power as a key element to leap frog over rugged jungle terrain and isolate and destroy Japanese strongholds. While tough Australian jungle fighters spearheaded the frontal ground assault, American paratroopers accompanied by Aussie light artillery volunteers, dropped on, seized & secured a Japanese air base behind enemy lines so that an Australian division could be ferried in on C-47s and attack the enemy from the rear.


The General Douglas MacArthur Story The life story of one of the most remarkable Generals in American history, from the trenches of World War 1, to the deep bunkers of Corregidor, to returning to the Philippines at Leyte Gulf, to the hills of Korea & much more.


Airplane 11: The First B-58 Hustler Trainer The first training version of the B-58 Hustler supersonic bomber, 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 test 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, a tour of the mockup of the converted crew section, and unique in flight footage shot from inside the aircraft.


Axis War News Captured Newsreels: He 111s, Stalingrad, the Tirpitz & more Some highlights: German air & naval forces (Tirpitz!) attack Allied convoys to Murmansk. Italian Sub Barbarigo operating in the South Atlantic. German & Italian forces attack an allied convoy in the Med. The fight for the Red October Factory in Stalingrad. The battle before Leningrad. Rommel's Afrika Korps is resupplied. German defensive lines and fortifications in Italy. HE 111 bomber attacks on the Eastern Front. Axis forces defend the "Kuban Bridgehead" against Soviet attacks.
