Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


During the Second World War, the FLEET AIR ARM flew and fought in some of the most hazardous missions imaginable, from the Atlantic and the Mediterranean to the Pacific. Yet its contribution to the war effort has been all too often overlooked.
This unique DVD sets the record straight. It provides a definitive film record of the most significant aircraft types used and combines rare archive film from both the Second World War and Korea with vivid eyewitness accounts by surviving FLEET AIR ARM pilots and aircrew of the era.
Rare footage captures all the drama of a Fairey Barracuda raid on the German battleship Tirpitz in 1943. The last aircrew survivor of the attack on the Italian fleet at Taranto recalls the mission, while another veteran describes what it was like to dive bomb the Scharnhorst flying a slow Blackburn Skua through flak and massed enemy fighters. Other highlights include an in-depth profile of the Fairey Swordfish and dramatic film of Sea Hurricanes, Seafires, Martlets, Hellcats, Corsairs and Avengers flying carrier ops as part of the British Mediterranean and Pacific fleets.
The DVD also includes amazing, previously unseen footage of Sea Furies and Fireflies in action in 1950, as well as first hand accounts of air combat missions in Korea.
