As featured on TheAviationist.com yesterday, a real nostalgia trip...

And this...twenty minutes of classic USAF jets blowing stuff up. You're welcome.

There's an amazing bit where both the drop aircraft (F-105) and chase aircraft (F-100) are hit by shrapnel from a premature detonation causing both aircraft crews to eject. Fascinating video and great to see the F-104 as napalm truck.

Thanks for posting these. The weapons effects film is fascinating and given the age and limited capabilities of the camera equipment they were using, really high quality in capturing the various weapons being released and striking their targets. I love the noise of the F104 and F105's cannons being fired.

 

How much more interesting would airshows be if we had some of this action?
