War 2 F6F Hellcat Aircraft DVD
Movies and Videos demonstrating the fighter plane and its pilots along
with history study notes about WW2 battles and the weapons used to fight them.
The Grumman F6F Hellcat was designed from the beginning to take back the skies over the Pacific from the Japanese Zero. Though not as maneuverable as the smaller Zero, the Hellcat's speed and firepower usually won the day.
Successor to the Grumman Wildcat, the F6F Hellcat made history in 1942 when it decisively whipped the Japanese aircraft carrier based fighters opposing it in the Pacific during WWII. In addition to its duty as a carrier-based fighter, the Hellcat served with the U.S. Marine Corps as a potent fighter-bomber. The DVD Movies and Videos will show the air battles and their history very clearly demonstrating how hard our veterans had to fight for our freedom.

Formula for Family Success
When Kids build an airplane model, they build their dreams and a future. What ever direction a kid looks at by using his mind, is the direction that the kid will follow. The purpose of the YellowAirplane website is to keep kids heading in the right direction. By using airplanes and the whole spectrum of aviation, we can keep our kids heading into a direction of technology and education. Here's a great formula for teaching kids about airplanes, technology and education. Watch a movie + Build a model airplane + Go to an air show X Spaced Repetition = An educated kid. Watch a movie about the kinds of airplanes that you will see at an upcoming air show. + Build a model of the kind of airplane you saw in the movie. + Go to a local air show, you will have the time of your life and see tremendous things.
