Shot by Corsair fighters during World War 2 in the Pacific Theatre of Operations (PTO), this movie gives you a remarkable up close look at aerial combat between U.S. Navy Corsairs and Japanese Zeros. While the entire film is in color, a few segments have been converted back into black & white to capture as much action as possible. After each sequence plays, it is repeated in slow-motion to bring out the details.
This DVD contains over fifty individual sequences of dogfight combat, nearly all over water. Most of the sequences are against the famous A6M Zero fighter, the primary Imperial Japanese Navy interceptor. Other notable sequences include a PBY water rescue sequence, and a spectacular sequence showing a E13 Jake seaplane, caught on the surface of the water, and strafed to bits.
The film has been locked away for years and was recently rediscovered.
