Bombs and "ACCIDENTS!"
Army Air Force Alerts" was a series of films produced at the advanced R&D facility at Wright Field, OH during World War 2. They updated authorized Air Force personnel on new developments in aviation technology, aircraft tests, communications and problem solving in the field.The first film, "Nerve Center: Wright Field is AAF's Proving Ground," is a tour of Wright Field. The second film, "WARNING TO AXIS: Chemical Bombs Now Ready in Quantity" shows the production of 100lb HS "Mustard Gas" Bombs and fitting them on aircraft. The third film, "Accidents!" is introduced by AAF Commanding General Hap Arnold.

The 362nd Fighter Group: On the prowl over Germany
Exclusive Production! Select 362nd Fighter Group P-47 Thunderbolt fighter/bombers were specially equipped with extra color movie cameras to capture thrilling ground and air attacks as they happened.

RAF NEWS S.E. Asia 1945
Building an Island Airfield & Air Sea Rescue
As RAF operations wound down in Europe, focus shifted to the South East Asian Theater. These "RAF GEN News Magazine" newsreel episodes were shown exclusively to RAF personnel, many of whom were soon to be transferred half way around the World. The first newsreel shows the building of an airfield on a desolate Pacific island atoll, from construction of runways & facilities through the takeoff of the first Spitfires to use the airfield. The second episode shows every day life at an air sea rescue base in Ceylon (Sri Lanka), climaxing in an exciting rescue of downed air crew in a coordinated operation between PBY Catalinas and fast patrol boats.
Interrogation of Enemy Airmen
This fascinating film, from the archives of the Central Intelligence Agency,. was produced during World War 2 to train American "AIOs" (Air Intelligence Officers) in techniques for interrogating captured enemy airmen, gathering vital intelligence. You'll get a look inside an AIO training school, where candidates learn a variety of interrogation methods, the importance of thoroughly familiarizing yourself with existing intelligence about enemy units and weapons, and observe mock interrogations that are critiqued by the class. Then you'll see a series of re-creations of field interrogations that are conducted by real AIO servicemen in the native languages of captured pilots with English subtitles.
Sucker Bait - German Spies in the U.S.A.
“Loose lips sink ships,” was a warning seen everywhere during World War 2 in America. In this highly dramatic training film, starring Richard Carlson with Donna Reed, Barry Nelson and Esther Williams, unfortunately that comes true. The framework of the film is a lecture to a freshman class for spies in Germany who will soon be sent to the USA. As the cynical, sardonic instructor says, “Here is an incident to illustrate how our enemies talk, think and are criminally careless.” The mission in the case study is to discover convoy sailing times & routes so U-Boats can sink them. The story line follows three servicemen, “Bob, Bill and Jack,” from their hometowns to their port of departure. Despite trying to be careful, small things they say and do are pieced together by German agents to form a big picture.
Battle Ship: Iowa Class Battle Wagons return to action
This film was produced as part of the ceremony commemorating the recommissioning of the Battle Ship Missouri in 1986. You'll see a history of the Iowa class Battleships (USS Iowa BB-61, USS New Jersey BB-62, USS Missouri BB-63 and USS Wisconsin BB-64), from launching during World War 2 through Korea & Vietnam to extensive refitting with modern electronics & Tomahawk cruise missiles before the 1st Gulf War..
The Grumman A-6E Intruder
Any Weather, Any Time
This video not only has great A-6 Intruder footage, there's also on the spot interviews with pilots & Air Wing Commanders discussing the aircraft's outstanding capabilities The A-6E, the definitive version of the Navy's A-6 Intruder attack bomber with upgraded navigation and attack systems, was introduced in 1970 and first deployed on 9 December 1971. The earlier separate search and track fire control radars of the A-6A/B/C were replaced by a single Norden AN/APQ-148 mult-imode radar, and on board computers with a more sophisticated & reliable IC based system. The film covers the essential role of the A6 as the most potent attack weapon for Vietnam War era US Navy Carrier battle groups
