USAF FILM CLIPS 1950s to 1960s

JULY 2011 – In the last few weeks i have been busy with many things and finally have found time for a short update.

I have spent about 4hrs researching and have collated some rarely seen footage that incorporates pilots and flightgear scenes for viewing.

We are able to see some very historical Korean War, 1950s , 1960s and Vietnam War era scenes covering USAF and USN operations.

Please check in a few weeks for more film clips that i have sorted through.

The title on the link basically explain what is in the film clip – enjoy 🙂
