This aircraft is one of only 2 operational SBD Dauntless today, so seeing this rare bird fly is unique. We will see it in Cincinnati, Ohio, arriving from its previous engagement and several close-up shots of taxi, start-ups, take-offs, landings, and some nice low passes over the field. There is a brief history of the aircraft, then live audio with minimal narration for the show. In addition to this modern footage, we have included the World War 2 film “Pacific Milk Run” which is about 17 minutes. This film, made by the Navy and Marines, shows operations off a pacific island with the SBD’s, B-25’s, TBM’s, and Corsairs in action. This film perfectly compliments the modern footage we have shot. Those radial engines sound great in our footage and in the film.
