Review of The Dauntless Rare World War II SBD Bomber DVD

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.

Shot with HD camera, except the old film which is Black and White with sound. Total 75 Minutes.

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good
3 Star Good
2 Star Fair
1 Star Poor

The rest is optional but appreciated.

In your opinion, how was the narration level? There was no narration.
Just enough.
Could have used more.
A little too much.
Way too much.
Narration can be turned off.

Aside from the content of the DVD, how would you rate the image quality (sharpness, camera steadiness, etc)? Poor.
A little rough around the edges.

How would you rate the VALUE of this video? Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
