    Chaps, I'm after some (any !) info on the Black Sheep Squadron series. I havent seen any of these and have thought about getting them from the web. What I dont know is how many episodes or series there where.

    Have any of you got the complete set and if so, could you drop me some details so I can get a set for myself ?. :thumbleft:

    I think I remember a disc for sale in th Historic Aviation catalog.
    Until then, most, maybe all, of the episodes are on UTube, just key Black Sheep Squadron.

    G'day Gary. I've got volume 1 2 on region 1 DVD but these only contain 23 episodes including the 2hr pilot episode. According to some posts on the IMDB, the remaining episodes are only available on DVD in France. Chris, does your DVD packs contain all 37 shows?

    Loved the series as a kid, in fact, this is the series that got me interested in WWII history. Read somewhere they were really hard on the Corsairs. Lot's of canned footage. My favorite episode was the one with Peter Frampton called "A little bit of England".

    I was looking forward to it when I saw the promos before it came out. At first I pretty dissappointed because of the way the made like they were made up of a lot of rejects .
    I had read Baa Baa Black Sheep, and another book on the unit, and knew that wasn't true. But I still watched every episode.

    It wasn't all it could have been. But you can't expect much from Hollywood.

    Me too, I remember reading Boyington's book a couple of years before the series came out. My brother gave me a box of books and stuff when he went to Viet-nam. There were a couple of the "Dave Dawson" series in there also.

    I remember that series. One of them had Boyington as a guest star. As I recall, none of the actual squadron members would have anything to do with him because of how he portraid the squadron.
