Rare color gun camera films show AAF fighters engaging Japanese aircraft and targets on the ground near the end of World War II in the Pacific. The film is silent; actual air-cooled .50-caliber machine gun sounds were added. Some viewers liked the audio, some muted it, and a few complained about it. The positive thumbs-ups have outpaced any thumbs-down. We have a hard time figuring out the fuss — if you want it the way it originally was, simply mute it and enjoy it your way. Thanks for watching. We hope you will subscribe to the Airailimages Channel on YouTube, and share this film with others who would like to see it.
