This aircraft is one of only 2 operational SBD Dauntless today, so seeing this rare bird fly is unique. We will see it in Cincinnati, Ohio, arriving from its previous engagement and several close-up shots of taxi, start-ups, take-offs, landings, and some nice low passes over the field. There is a brief history of the aircraft, then live audio with minimal narration for the show. In addition to this modern footage, we have included the World War 2 film "Pacific Milk Run" which is about 17 minutes. This film, made by the Navy and Marines, shows operations off a pacific island with the SBD's, B-25's, TBM's, and Corsairs in action. This film perfectly compliments the modern footage we have shot. Those radial engines sound great in our footage and in the film.
Shot with HD camera, except the old film which is Black and White with sound. Total 75 Minutes.
