WARBIRDS OF WWII, Volume 2. 2-DVD Video Set. During the Second World War, military aviation truly came of age. six brief years, aircraft evolved from fragile wood and fabric biplanes to jet powered fighters capable of more than 500 miles an hour.
This collection includes some of the primary antagonists in the war over Europe and the Pacific, and explores how this group of aircraft helped revolutionize aerial combat. Over 4 hours!
Grumman F6F Hellcat
The Hellcat represented a major step forward over its forerunner, the Wildcat. With over 12,000 produced, the F6F was a perfect example of a simple design being in the right place at exactly the right time.
Mitsubishi A6M Zero
Japan's most famous and used aircraft, the Zero first saw combat over China in 1940 and remained in service until the end of World War II.
Vought F4U Corsair
After some early problems, the Corsair went on to become, according to many, the finest fighter in World War II.
Griffon Supermarine Spitfire
The Spitfire, with its slender fuselage and a top speed of 460 mph, was lean, fast and more than a match for the German foes it encountered.
Although less capable and trickier to fly than later German fighters, the 109 was the craft of choice for many of the Luftwaffe's leading aces.
Easy to fly, nimble and a stable gun platform, the Hurricane recorded most of the RAF's fighter kills during the Battle of Britain.
