(Restored 1943) NEW High Def Upload!
Target for Today is the classic World War II feature length documentary showing a "maximum effort" daylight bombing mission deep into Germany. This is a new restored HD edition you won't see anywhere else. There are no actors in "Target For Today." This film was shot on location under combat conditions and features the officers and men of the 8th Air Force going about their deadly business. All aspects of an actual major raid in 1943, from early planning through final touch down and crew debriefings, are covered. Anklam. Danzig and the FW-190 plant at Marienburg are the targets hit. You'll see operations from the high command down through Divisions, Wings, Groups & into Squadrons as the missions unfold. Easy to understand graphics show how B-17 & B-24 squadrons were organized in the air for maximum defensive fire and how they were routed to deceive enemy defenses.
Position Firing How to hit a moving target from a World War 2 Bomber
Hands down the best presentation of how to hit a moving target from a moving aircraft we've seen. This entertaining and informative animated U.S. Air Force training film, "Position Firing," featuring waist gunner "Trigger Joe" (the immortal voice of Mel Blanc) was developed to teach gunners the basics of how to hit attacking fighters from bombers like the B-17 & B-24. (If you think you learned everything you need to know about leading a target on a skeet range, think again.) When you factor in differing air speed, altitude, direction, deflection, & more, it's a whole new ball game.
We Flew the Mig
In September, 1953, a North Korean defector handed over the first Russian Mig 15 to fall into US hands. This was a momentous occasion because the Mig had proven to be a worthy adversary for the North American F-86 Sabre in the skies over Korea. The Mig was immediately subjected to comprehensive testing. You'll see Chuck Yeager and other top test pilots putting the Mig through it's paces and hear what they learned, along with a point by point performance comparison with the F-86. Nice footage of the Mig's armaments too.
First Flights of the Northrop YB-49 Flying Wing
1948 (Digitally Restored)
This film was produced by the US Air Force and Northrop to show the first test flights of the YB-49 Flying Wing at Northrop' s Hawthorne, California facility, introducing it to the American public for the first time. The YB-49 was a redesign of the propeller driven B-35, upgraded with six GE Allison jet engines and various structural design improvements. The revolutionary design and almost other worldly, alien spacecraft-like lines of the jet powered Wing are highlighted in this very clean black and white footage.The huge size of this sleek aircraft becomes apparent when ground crew stand next to the gigantic wheels. This is the great grandfather of the Northrop B-2 Stealth Bomber.
Convair B-58 "Hustler" Supersonic Bomber First Test Flight

On Veterans Day, Nov 11th, 1956 Convair's revolutionary delta wing B-58 "Hustler" supersonic bomber took to the skies for the first time, piloted by B. A, Ericson, who had also flown the first test flight of the company's giant B-36 "Peacemaker" intercontinental bomber.You'll see both the low and high speed taxi testing, including front wheel lift off, that proceeded the B-58's first flight, delivering excellent footage of the silvery prototype from a number of angles. The first flight takes the aircraft to Mach .7 at 20,000' and back down again without a hitch -- and you'll see it all in this memorable color film

World War 2 U.S. Navy Aviation Metal Smiths
Making aircraft parts from scratch in a war zone
Spare parts for Naval aircraft weren't always readily available at sea or in the field. Your see Navy metal smiths produce a replacement engine cowling from scratch in the field, including producing a mold and casting, for a PBY Catalina and repairing a PB4-Y (the Navy's B-24) with a new nose turret and more.
