Very cool Michael.

In that vein, here's a cool video that is well worth looking at. Rare unedited color footage of WWII planes and carriers.

This is 16mm color (not "colorized") footage that you may not have seen of carrier action in the Pacific. Not many color shots in the '40's - extremely expensive then, with a complicated and exacting processing procedure.

Cheers,
