Movie Reviews

Best P-38 Info Out There!
electronics guy | USA | 05/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is amazing! The photography is beautiful - crisp, in focus, well lit, beautiful. Jeff Ethells's commentary is excellent as he puts the 38 through its paces from preflight through shutdown and flight off the beautiful coast of Oregon at Tillamook. This segment is also haunting as I think the plane he is flying is the same one he died in not too long after the footage was taken for this segment. Also the one featured on the cover of Flight Magazine in Jeff's "Flying the..." series. But it is the best footage of a living, breathing, P-38 you will find. It also has the training film that you'll find separately at museums and such on VHS - but on DVD so you can play it as much as you want. I haven't had time to go through the whole DVD yet but everything I've seen so far is too good to be true - but it is. If you like P-38s, this is an absolute must-have."

"This has the best sound of all the series (all of which are good). It is quite a thrill when, from the cockpit view, the engines are started. It continues with the run up before take off. I had this in a VHS version and bought the DVD to get better sound. It is the best of the series (I have them all)"
Keep History Alive - Get This Series

"This series represents an important archive of information about a crucial part of World history. This collection should be part of every Middle or High schools' media center. If you have the means, buy even one episode on DVD and donate it to a local school. Specific to my review, now, this episode about the P-38 Lightning was my first exposure to the Roaring Glory experience. It completely entertained and informed me, giving me an entire new respect and admiration for the men who designed and fought in these machines. The DVD is astounding in it's image quality and sound. There are many extra features, making this little nugget of history a steal at the prices found on Amazon! Want to keep history alive? Want to feel renewed pride as an American? Start your own adventure with Vol. 9 of Roaring Glory - let the "Lightning" strike you today!"
If you love airplanes, you'll love this DVD

"This DVD has excellent sound. It gives just enough technical detail to keep it interesting and then moves to the flying scenes. The "Young Pilots" part is a little corny, but my children love it because it reads like a story. The training film is quite interesting and explains a lot of the technical aspects of flying the Lightning. Be sure to have a surround sound system and then crank it up loud!"
