Hello alll.

you will find an extensive collection of other clips under the playlist almost 200 videos "Aviation History videos"

I really like this idea. I haven't been collecting old movies or newsreels, but I have started to collect links to unusual cartoons, most of which are in a foreign language. The cartoon collecting bug got me after I saw some odd, fat, out of scale jets and later discovered there was a Korean cartoon for inspiration. Then someone shared one called "Path of Hate", which was very capturing on many levels. If you guys would like a link to the Youtube offerings, let me know and I will post here. I subscribed to a weekly email notification. Thanks for sharing.

Well that didn't take long, utube seem to have taken "The First of the Few" off already. Pity, I wanted to see this, it was on TV not long ago and I missed it.

Watched entire movie and even though my connection isn't the best, no problems noted. The movie is very period, meaning a bit over played most of the time, but still a good story and worth a watch. Thanks again for the link. Just in case some may like a bit of a change, try this one out when you are feeling a need for a more modern comic relief.
plane story (7 min 22 sec)
