THUNDERBOLT (1944, TECHNICOLOR, 44:41)
Welcome to "The Country Club", the base of operations in Corsica for an American fighter-bomber group flying legendary P-47 Thunderbolts assigned to interdiction deep behind enemy lines during the fierce ground fighting of 1944 Italy. Logic and tactics are expounded upon but not at the expense of maintaining intimate contact with the details and feel of the daily life of the men involved. The Thunderbolt aircraft used by this group were specially loaded with color film in cameras mounted throughout the plane, making for truly extraordinary bomb run and air-to-ground battle footage from a variety of angles. From take-off to landing and the careful maintenance in-between, this film shows what the planes and the men of this fighter group went through in this fight.
BONUS FEATURE: RECOGNITION OF THE JAPANESE ZERO FIGHTER (1942, 9:05)
An Army Air Force training film starring Ronald Reagan as a fledgling fighter pilot who needs to know how to identify and successfully combat the famed Japanese Zero Zen fighter.
