another rare documentary:

Out of the Sun


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVMO1q5FbIs

Quote
This highly-unusual promotional film for the F-16 made by General Dynamics consists mainly of interviews with 20th Century fighter-pilot aces as they recall the performance of their planes and of enemy aircraft. Aces interviewed include W.C. Bill Lambert from World War 1 (footage of Manfred Baron von Richthofen is also shown in this segment); Adolf Galland from the Spanish Civil War and World War 2; Douglas Bader, Robert Stanford-Tuck, Sven Heglund, David Lee Tex Hill, and Erich Hartmann from World War 2; Francis Gabreski from World War 2 and the Korean War; Ralph Parr from the Korean War; and Steve Ritchie from the Vietnam War. Planes discussed by the aces and shown in action include the SE5, FW-190, Spitfire, ME-109, ME-110, Hurricane, P-40, Zero, P-47, P-51, ME-262, F-86, MIG-15, and F-16. At the end of the film, the F-16 is said to display the characteristics the aces say they want in a fighter plane.

This film is part of the Periscope Film LLC archive, one of the largest historic military, transportation, and aviation stock footage collections in the USA.
