Strategic Air Command [VHS]

Stars the legendary Jimmy Stewart as a lieutenant recalled to Air Force duty at  the height of the Cold War. Filmed in VistaVision, the spectacular aerial  sequences of B-36 bombers make this movie a standout. 1955, color.

From the Webmaster:  This video also covers the B-47 and B-36 with many fantastic shots of both aircraft in operation.  I'm very sorry that this movie isn't in a DVD format, the movie is really great.  The actor Jimmy Stuart was a real Air Force pilot and was operations officer of the 8th Air Force in WW2.  My friend, and I call him my second dad, Frank Simpson was the duty driver for General James Stuart, the same guy in the movie, David Niven, Robert Cummings and Glen Ford.  Frank told me that every one of these guys were absolutely great to work with, but since he was just an airman and they were top brass, he was afraid to talk to them.  C.
