Air Assault Japanese Mainland, take the time to watch this authentic live footage clip of the air assault on the Japanese mainland, just before A-Bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
Just think of 600 B-29s all taking off to bomb Japan at one time.
This is video from the color film archives . 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. The P-51 & B29 footage is remarkable. The strafing runs by the P-51 pilots were incredible . There are several break as the film canisters are changed, which appear as short pauses.
All in all it is very well done considering this film is from WW2 and in color, and parts are in Combat.
