This is an original documentary I put together from silent, unedited archival film footage and stills. The essential roll that "Attack" bombers like the A-20 & A-26 is one of the untold stories of World War 2.
Legendary SFP 186 Army Air Force combat cameramen rode along with 416th Bomb Group A-26 Invaders during March and April, 1945 with color film loaded in their cameras. The results are some of the most beautiful and dramatic footage to come out of the World War II.You'll see fleets of silver Invaders soaring through towering cumulus clouds before unloading torrents of bombs deep inside the Third Reich. An added bonus is a cache of remarkable still pictures taken by 416th Group (668th, 669th, 670th and 671st Bomb Squadrons) staff photog "Sargent Cachat" showing A-26s and their crews. (Thanks to Carl Sgamboti at The Douglas A-26C Preservation Project for permission to use these still pics.)
I digitally restored the film and still images in this video & added music and sound effects.
