very nice footage indeed. Pardon my ignorance but is that a Japanese movie from the 40's? Or post WW2?

Yep, was made during the war. The effects are quite reasonable for their day too.

Thanks Feathered_IV. Did they use real combat footage or some captured US planes?

Feathered,
Just jumped ahead to part 5 'cause you mentioned the aerial "scrap". Looks to me like a mixture of miniatures (how the Japanese love them, eh) and sequences filmed using captured aircraft. The photography is pretty dynamic and fluid, and my favorite clips are those filmed from a chase plane showing both hunter and hunted in a close chase.

But after watching them strafe that airfield with those little MG's I couldn't help it but shake my head. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Great work, F_IV. I happen to own a DVD without subtitles so I have seen it.

Great find, thanks. In "Letters from Iwo jima," General Kuribayashi talks to his men in very polite Japanese. He almost sounds like a polite junior high school teacher talking to his students. In contrast, in many WW2 movies shot in Japan after WW2 (especially the ones produced by right-leaning crowd, including the latest "Ore wa ki mino ...."), they often sound like angry men yelling at each other. In this 1944 movie shot during the war, pilots talk to each other in a very polite but laidback manner. I've watched only a part of these clips so far, but already in two scenes, pilots even tease Kato, and Kato responds smiling.

I was thinking the same thing. From the destruction they wrought, you'd think they were strafing with Ki-84's instead of early model Hayabusas.

Those Ki-21's bombing accuracy was great too...not a bomb dropped out of place http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif The trail of destruction looked like a godzilla movie.

I can't read or understand Japanese, but it was interesting trying to get the gist of what they were saying by their tones. Their use of vocal inflections ( in a sentence ) intriguing as well. I couldn't tell if that one pilot was bawling out the ground crewman ( on the wing, just before getting in the cockpit ) or thanking him and bidding farewell.

BTW, what type of fruit was that one pilot cutting up and serving the others? Some weird type of melon the size of a soccer ball with a think peelable rind.

I too was going to mention the Mk108's those Hayabusa's seemed to be packing http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

One thing that fascinates me about this film (you probably noticed it too) is how familiar it all seems.

You often read about that "camaraderie of the sky" where pilots claim that airmen are much the same the world over. Something about the experience of flight and how it transcends political and national borders. It never really made that much of an impact on me until now. As you watch it, you can easily imagine the exact same scenes played out on British, American, German or Russian airfields at any time or place since flying began. Kind of cool really. Perhaps some of this camaraderie stuff rubs off. Maybe it is the glue that brings the whole dysfunctional lot of us together and keeps us comming back after all these years.
