How to Fly the Bell P-39 Airacobra New
The P-39 was one of the U.S,Army Air Corps front line fighters when world War 2 broke out in the Pacific, but was soon replaced as more advanced aircraft like the P-38 became available. On the other hand, the P-39 was one of the Soviet Air Force's favorite US. Imports. The Airacobra was an outstanding tank buster on the Eastern Front. It's mid engine and 37mm canon were virtually unique. The '39 was widely used as a trainer in the US and had a reputation for weeding out poor pilots – permanently. This film covers all aspects of flying the P-39, including takeoffs, landing,s aerobatics like rolls and loops, and how to control spins & stalls.
Here are three short newsreels featuring the Bell Airacobra shown to the American people during World War 2. The first film shows the Bell Aircraft P-39 assembly line in Niagara Falls, New York. Then you'll see P-39s taking target practice , Finally, you see Airacobras and P-63 King Cobras flown across the Bering Strait under Lend Lease to Russia. Unlike the US Army Air Force, these aircraft were prized by the Soviets, who used them for ground attack & tank busting..
I produced this original documentary from dark, faded silent gun camera film footage from the Spring of 1945 over Germany. I've been able to restore it using digital technology. I've added additional info about the pilots and planes and added real P-47 Thunderbolt sound effects. Featured pilots from the 362nd FG are Alvin Lieberman, Robert A Jackson and the legendary Wilfred Crutchfield, flying his P-47 "Kentucky Colonel," attacking a wide variety of ground targets in March, 1945. (The 362nd FG is also featured on our very popular "P-47 Thunderbolts Attack!" DVD.)
The General Dwight D Eisenhower Story New
This film covers the life story of "Ike" Eisenhower from his humble beginnings to West Point, through World War 1, as a rising star between the Wars, to Supreme Allied Commander in Europe during World War 2. Eisenhower combined high intelligence, insight, and a grasp of strategy & tactics with a unique ability to manage the fractious coalition of nations and personalities that made up the Allied Forces in Europe. This is the amazing story of an extremely talented leader
What was that mysterious plane swooping down out of the night sky on unsuspecting Japanese ships and bases, hundreds of miles from any known American airstrip? The answer was, as you'll see in this good humored, affectionate film, the slow, ungainly, but deadly "Black Cat" PBY. Originally designed primarily as a reconnaissance and antisubmarine amphibious patrol plane, the big twin engined 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 without an air strip, made it an ideal naval night attack bomber. One of the least known stories of the war in the Pacific,
Carrieir Plane
Catapulting Off a World War 2 Aircraft Carrier
Small World War II aircraft carriers depended on their catapults to operate aircraft. This unique film offers a rare look at how US Navy carrier crews were trained to operate catapults to launch aircraft, even from very short decks.
Sub Commander
Submarine Warfare in the Pacific in World War 2
This film was completed shortly after the end of the War and contains rare footage on US submarine operations you won't find anywhere else. There is a cameo appearance by Japanese Fleet Admiral Nagano who discusses (in English) the effect of US sub operations on the ability of the Japanese to make war. That's because the "pig boats" inflicted military and transport losses on the enemy that were far beyond their own tiny numbers. The program is introduced by Vice Admiral Charles A. Lockwood, Jr, the legendary commander of Pacific submarine forces (COMSUBPAC) and narrated by Gene Kelly.
Denmark Fights Back
Denmark Fights for Freedom 1944 New

The recent tragedy in Denmark (February, 2015) brings to mind the Dane's amazing national fight for free speech & democracy against the German occupation in World War 2, values that endure and are still challenged to this day. What if an entire nation stayed home & refused to show up at work to fight an enemy occupation? You'll see that & much more in this dramatic documentary film, surreptitiously shot and smuggled out during the occupation. It's an stirring story of how a spirited nation pulled together to fight oppression through acts of sabotage and mass civil disobedience
