You will learn how the warplanes that paved the way for the invasions of Europe and the Pacific were flown and maintained. Created by the U.S. military to quickly train the thousands of crews needed, these instructional films put you into the cockpit of these storied aircraft.
When the U.S. entered WWII in 1941, America's supply of bombers, and the crewmen who would fly them into combat, was very thin. As America rushed to increase production and introduce new aircraft designs, the military tackled the all-important task of training the young men who would serve aboard them. By 1943, new designs and improvements to pre-war aircraft improved America's ability to take the fight to the enemy, allowing Allied bombers to strike deep into enemy territory.
U.S. airpower played a significant role in turning the tide in the European and Pacific theaters in WWII. The advantage that the Germans and Japanese air forces held early in the war gave way to the superior design and sheer numbers of American bombers able to deliver massive payloads of explosives deep into enemy territory. Assisted by improved fighter escort, American bombers provided crucial destructive preparation for ground penetration, from Normandy to Iwo Jima, eventually delivering the ultimate weapon that ended the war in the Pacific.
Disc One of Flight Check-Bombers brings you the training films for two early U.S. bombers, the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and the Martin B-26 Marauder. Each film provides detailed instruction for pilots and crew in the aircraft's operation, payload delivery, emergency procedures and maintenance.
Disc Two of Flight Check-Bombers brings you training films for three celebrated bombers: The Consolidated B-24 Liberator
the North American B-25 Mitchell Bomber and the plane that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Boeing B-29 Superfortress
