Aviation: A Filmed History
Culled from the National Archives and the vaults of talented filmmakers, this large collection of aviation history is available in a boxed set featuring historical newsreel footage, documentary featurettes and rare scenes. Much of the content is narrated by some of Hollywood’s greatest names, and the 24-DVD set includes everything from early footage of short hops across farm fields to hypersonic flight at the edge of space. World War II footage from Europe and the Pacific is especially dramatic, with intense bombing missions, dogfights and hair-raising takeoffs and landings. The boxed set is available for $79.99 from Sporty’s.
