Combat Color Film — Pacific Fighter Strafing

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.

Aircraft Carrier Landings – 1946 – Navy Training Cartoon

Safety training film evidently aimed at young naval aviators. Among other things, this film stresses the proper approach angle for pilots to catch the wire with their tailhooks, and never to disregard the wave-off or cut signals from the Landing Signal Officer…If I ever become a naval aviator, I’ll be ready…
