Some Weekend Watching: Last bombing of Japan B-29 / P-51 Combat footage (Video)

Some Weekend Watching: Last bombing of Japan B-29 / P-51 Combat footage (Video)

Well worth the 36:08 minutes to see

Some real good footage, especially for those interested in WW 2 Aviation~~~

This is spectacular live footage of the 3,000 round trip mile air assault upon the Japanese mainland, with 3 bomber wings and a host of P-51's. This is the real way to end a war.

No matter what war footage you ever saw before, this is the real deal and will keep your undivided attention. The P-51 & B29 footage is remarkable. The strafing runs by the P-51 pilots were incredible.

There are several “breaks” as the film canisters are changed, just wait for the count down
