B-29 Superfortress in operation  (1945)

WWII B-29's In Operation: South-East Asia.
A film short depicting the B-29 in service while first based in China. Those familiar with the history of the B-29 can certainly appreciate this part of the struggle that made Superfortress a household name.

The Rear Gunner - US Army Air Forces (1943)

WWII recruiting film. "Rear Gunner" is one of the best examples of how Hollywood pitched in and worked to boost morale and also recruit men into the service.
It is interesting to get a glimpse of just what a rear gunner did and how he learned to do it. A seldom seen look inside an actual World War II bomber gunnery school. US Army Air Forces - 1943, 25:38 minutes
