Review of A Rare B-24 Bomber DVD

Currently the most authentic B-24 still in operation is owned and operated by the Collings Foundation. The aircraft is B-24J named "Witchcraft". We venture to Valparaiso, Indiana for a weekend of watching several aircraft in operation. Besides watching action with the B-24, you will enjoy seeing 2 different P-51's, a B-25, and a B-17 flying. The B-24 is seen over a three-day period, as it takes riders for flight experiences. We will showcase footage of the aircraft on the ground as it prepares for flights, taxi shots, take-offs, landings, and some nice fly-overs in good weather. Sometimes you will see more than one aircraft moving at the same time. The B-24 is much rarer than even the B-17's that are still flying today. These B-24 type aircraft are larger than the B-17's and were used in all theaters during the war for many purposes. Later in the war they were surpassed in size by the B-29's. In addition to footage from our visit, we also have included a 4-5 minute segment showing B-24
