Toward the end of World War II, General Hap Arnold authorized the making of a color film on the activities of his forward strike air crews as the Allies closed in on Berlin. Over the course of 60 days, film crews captured the activities of the 362 Fighter Group, which destroyed over 6000 German targets but suffered a nearly fifty percent casualty rate as the camera rolled. Deemed too brutal to show to the public, the film was shelved -- until now. With the help of four of the pilots who appeared in the unreleased 1945 production, the program captures the actions and emotions of P-47 Thunderbolt crews above Germany over 55 years ago.
Excellent quality TV rip of this spectacular colour film. Includes a lot of gun camera footage of strafing ground targets: trains, bridges and buildings. A must for every P-47 fan !! Enjoy, and remember to seed !!!
