Your webmaster has yet to see 'Red Tails' but is eager to do so, despite the waves of negative
reviews he has heard and read about this film, and despite what he sees in some of the stills,
trailers, and other video clips to be found around the internet. Apparently Mr. Lucas, though his
heart was in the right place, has dropped the ball numerous times here. We shall see.
Anyhoo, I'll be adding a feature page for this flick in the future... or perhaps
a couple'a pages. But until then, enjoy this groovy airfield scene...
The flix section of any aviation-themed website would be incomplete without at least one shot
showing rows upon rows (slight exaggeration) of fiberglass replica P-40s getting blown to hell
by waves of attacking AT-6s and BT-13... uuuhhh... that is, uh, waves of Kates, Vals, and Zeroes.
'TORA! TORA! TORA!' is another flick which will be featured in the future...
Until I figure out exactly where I'm going to put newsreels and other vintage motion pictures
on the site, I'll leave this here. 'Tis a short Paramount News piece on Curtiss production
of the P-40 for Lend-Lease at Plant #1 in Tonawanda, New York in early 1941.
