The Buffalos look even fatter in motion (I didn't think that was possible.)

Neat to see how some of the turrets operated.

But the guys rolling the bombs out to the plane really made me laugh (nervously!)


Thanks for pointing this clip out.

1st time I've heard of that. Nevertheless, the footage is interesting no matter where it was taken.

Even though the video says Burma most likely Singapore.
Mark is stating what the link says.
Cool video.

I received an e-mail from a gentleman in the Netherlands asking about my 1/48 B-10 kit. His father was a gunner on one and didn't come home, lost in combat early in the war in a B-10. Watching this I wondered if he might be one of those filmed.

Thanks for the clarity.
It looked to me that the map the Buffalo pilots were looking at showed an east-facing coastline. Granted, the souther area of Burma, bordering Thailand on the Malaysian peninsula could be the area they're looking at, but I'm more inclined to believe they were well south of Burma.
Of course, I could be imagining what I'm seeing…
