DVD Honor Squadron

SKU E10028

Of the 500,000 planes that flew during World War II, less than 6,000 remain-- and only a handful are still flying. But the Commemorative Air Force, made up of about 8,000 international members, is dedicated to keeping the spirit of these icons alive. Just how much time, money and energy does it take from this all-volunteer crew to keep these iconic airplanes flying? And why do they do it? Find out in Honor Squadrons, previously viewed on PBS.

Included features:

-Hear from World War II veterans, including George H.W. Bush and Lloyd Bentsen, as well as Luftwaffe test pilot Werner Seitz and Imperial Japanese Navy air cadet Ryu Hatano.

-Experience the restoration process of the B-17 Texas Raiders, the B-24 All American, P-51 Mustang, P-38 Lightning and the Japanese Zero.

-Watch footage of vintage bombers in action during WWII and today!
