    Did gun cameras really record sound? No point in that.

    Not sure why I like these films so much. I think about all the WWII men and what it must have been like back then.

  11. steelshark studios says:

    i wonder how many planes crashed, on either side, because they were hit by debris from the plane they were shooting down

  12. munta1967 says:

    regardless which side they fought for (most were not devout Nazis) …they were fighting as ordered by their country, it is always the older politicians who send out the young men/women to die, always has been that way…maybe its time to send out the politicians to fight and die? then due their asses nipping up, we can all live in peace 🙂

  13. The sad thing is at this time most germans best had been killed, so the people teaching weren't the best, and the men sent off were very ill-experienced.
    Respect to all humans who reach for the sky though.


    ANY film footage showing US/British fighter pilots aiming at and trying to kill German pilots who bail out of their planes?
    I asks because we Americans brag and beat our chest all the time how we don't ever do that. Wonder if it's BS or true?

  15. Back when men had balls.

  16. Aircraft destroyed
    Sl 13000
    Rp 500

  18. Jérôme D. says:

  20. Linda McEntaffer says:

    These guys must've been carrying 4,000 lbs of Ammo, eh?

  21. 1:19 I’m very certain that he hit that tree

  22. Republi Traitors says:

    3:20 While yanks give combat footage the breakfast cereal sales treatment, totally misses telling it's pilots to make SURE that the jet plane you see is German & not an RAF Meteor.

  23. john adams says:

    Young, flying around in a P51, shooting shit up. Such fun !

  24. ThreeHeadedWalrus says:

    Ah, when crushing Nazi's was the good thing to do. Now people get offended if you criticise them, and they fly their flag. Disgusting.

  25. Identity Dixie says:
