Rare Aerial Footage
In this clip, we get to see the 65th Fighter Wing’s gun camera footage. We have to say, this footage is absolutely amazing. Glad that someone placed cameras there back in the day, and we hope we get to see more of these old archives. There must of millions of wing cameras in government collections that didn’t get to see the light of day!
We even got to see a famous name appearing at the 2:33 mark – Captain R. Olds. Yes, that Captain Olds who at the age of 22, was promoted to Major and was given command of the 434th/479th squadron. Pretty intense! Also, for a split second at the 5:46 mark, we thought the pilot was about to fly under that bridge.
