"This set is the first I tried from the Aircraft Films series of discs, and I am very happy with the set.
There's a lot here, much of which I had never seen before. The quality of the images varies somewhat, but most of it is well above average, and many parts are outstanding. With an informative documentary and a good deal of extra footage, this set kept me busy for hours. The only complaint I would have is that some of the footage is silent, but the nature of the footage overcomes that limitation.
The "Napalm" footage is interesting. I'll bet if they did that today (testing it on goats) PETA would go nuts! (You don't actually see the goats getting it... just being led into trenches before hand)... and the rocket footage of the Tiny Tim was interesting as well.
The footage was comprehensive, including the "Black Sheep," and there is footage and photos from Korea, as well as the first tests on Enterprise, Wasp, Essex... just lots of cool stuff.
Well worth the price for good looking, rare material I haven't seen anywhere else."
