This video contains the actual, uncut 8mm home movies filmed by a command pilot of a B-52 in 1966.
Very cool in-flight home movie footage from this era.
Filmed by the same pilot who filmed the B-36 footage I also have listed.
This film is simply awesome in my opinion. The pilot who filmed it also went for a ride in a KC-135 tanker and filmed refueling from the boom, as well as filming from the cockpit of the B-52. Also, scenes from a base stateside, brief airshow with paratroopers jumping from a C-119. Then water survival scenes in a pool.
Then formation flying with other B-52’s, and then a short but very cool scene from an ArcLight mission, with his wingman opening his bomb bay doors, and a lot of bombs being dropped. I have to assume that when a B-52 suddenly dropped that much weight, maintaining altitude was challenging, as it is a bit bumpy. Then scenes from their base in Guam. This is a really neat film!!
