On www.stormbirds.com (http://www.stormbirds.com) i was looking for the video clips of the flyable me262's there was a total of about 12 hires clips of thier me262s flights.

They had the startup, first flight, the nose gear collapsing on landing, and many others after it was fixed. Does anyone have these videos saved if so please let me know thanks.

I also been looking for the hires p-38 glaciergirl videoclips if anyone has them available

LeadSpitter_... Great Posting!
I really enjoyed the story Watson's Whizzer's... and the fact that the four Me 262 and their American Pilots survive to this day.
Excellent overall site though.

EURO_Snoopy... Mint couple of photos!

I couldnt find any of the videos at thier site and looked at everypage, and all the links which use to have the footage im looking for.

These are the only two clips I have of the me262 but was looking for the ones in flight.

LeadSpitter_... I checked Google and a number of sites... but with no luck. They must have taken those video clips offline. All I can find are the same two clips you have posted.
I had those videos of the first flights stored on my video page for awhile but I deleted them a while back. I should have left them.

I wrote to them at stormbirds and they no longer have the clips available. Some news networks hosted them in RealAudio format which no longer have the clips available. The do have a vhs you can buy for the me262 project.

I also asked for the camera guys email address so maybe I can get some clips from him and find a host for the il2 community. I also asked thier thoughts and opinions on the series if any of them play this sim.

I will let you know when I get a response back.

Here is the last email.

we do not have movie or wave files anymore. The web site is owned by someone
else and we provide updates when available.

Regarding the gear problems of 2003. The nose gear did not collapse.
The left main came unlocked and folded up on our 2nd flight/landing. All
parts have be repaired. Cause located and replaced.
