* Camouflage NEW -Restored Color! This film is a treasure. It's one of the best examples of the theory and practice of the art of camouflaging military targets from air observation & attack that you'll find anywhere, presented in a highly entertaining Disney style full color animation supplemented by live action film. Hosted by '"Yehudi the Chameleon," the action is centered around a P-39 Airacobra base in the Pacific and is chocked full of useful information & "how-tos."

*World War 2 USN Ordnancemen NEW-Restored Color! This films is an amazing look behind the scenes at what made the US Navy's Air Arm tick during World War 2. Aviation Ordnancemen handled all aspects of naval aircraft weapons systems, including installation, maintenance and arming & loading See them bore sight the guns on a F6F Hellcat and load it up it with 50 caliber rounds, arm and mount a 1,000 pound bomb on an SBD Dauntless dive bomber, load a torpedo into a TBF Avenger, mount a torpedo under the wing of a Coronado amphibious bomber and more.

*Air Reconnaissance & Observation NEW!. Airborne intelligence gathering was an essential aid to land and sea combat operations in World War 2 This film was produced by the Army Signal Corps as an introduction for Airborne Observers, including visual reporting, photographic and artillery spotting. Their activities are shown in detail

*A Day with the A-36s in Sicily. The A-36 was the ground attack variant of the P-51 and was known as "the Invader" or "the Mustang." Unique extended color version with newly discovered footage. Very rare combat film of an A-36A fighter-bomber squadron in action in Sicily. The A36A was equipped with the Mustang's original Allison engine, as opposed to the Rolls Royce Merlin adapted so successfully in the escort versions, which worked just fine for low level work. Note the quad 20mm canons on this fast and powerful attack plane, very unusual on an American fighter.

*The Army Air force Report -1944 This fascinating film report on the state of the Army Air Force was prepared by the Office of Strategic Services (forerunner to the C.I.A.) and delivered to the American people by Air Force C-in-C General Hap Arnold in early 1944. We know of no better picture of the organization and operation of US Air Force power in the midst of World War 2.

*Luftwaffe Finis - The end of the German Air Force. Color footage of top Luftwaffe leaders and pilots taken as they fell into Allied hands at the end of World War II. You'll see startlingly realistic color footage of Herman Goering, Adolf Galland, Hans Ulrich Rudel and many more. Captured aircraft are shown as well, including an Me 262, the first jet fighter, and an FW 190. You'll be amazed when you see these color images. A must have for World War II aviation fans

*White Tailed Marauders: The 323rd Bomb Group & their B-26s. Exclusive Documentary Rare color film of B-26 Marauders in action in the Spring of 1945. See the 453rd, 454th, 455th, and 455th Bomb Squadrons operating against Germany from their base in France. All color footage really brings this bygone era startlingly back to life.

* B-52 Vietnam - 4258th Strategic Wing operations out of U Tapao Air Base Thailand The focus of this dramatic film is an "Arc Light" bombing mission flown by Pilot Captain George Dietrich and the crew of B-52 D "075," 4258th Strategic Wing out of U Tapao, Thailand in support of the besieged marine base at Khe Sahn in 1968. You'll see every aspect of the mission from Wing briefing, pre-fight check & takeoff, through the bomb run and final touch down/
