    Hi,

    I just found this almost hour long film on Google videos.............

    The first part is lots of 'never before seen' USN gun camera footage with carrier names, a short kamakazi bit, carrier aviators inspection line-up on the carrier deck.
    Then at 12:23 there's a War department training film about the AN- gun camera showing different models and fitted to AT-6, P-40 P-38.
    Then there's another War department training film on pilot training useing the scoreing system/camera. (AT-6).
    Then at the very end some gun camera footage from Korea showing Mig 15s going down............


    War Department Training Film [BX5594]

    cheers enjoy,
