SOME OF THE “GREAT WAR’S” AVIATION TAKES – ON VIDEO!

Many thanks to Johan R. Ryheul, the Great War’s Battlefield Detective, we see things that were remarkable because they were caught on the day’s primitive film.  Johan has speed corrected the footage, so it is no longer jerky and too fast.  You can hardly believe how the first German crew survived when they were shot down . . . all amazingly caught live on camera.

This first archival video is only 12:35 long.

      Thanks for your remarks, Virg. Glad you enjoyed these old films as restored to a higher quality than when they were first shown over a century ago. Will do our best to find some more like this one.
