Recently we brought you rarely seen gun camera footage from U.S. aircraft in the Pacific theater. The B-29 wreaked havoc on Japan, but the Japanese had their victories, too. Here’s some footage released by the Imperial Japanese Air Defense forces that shows combat as well as the aftermath of shoot-downs of B-29s and F6F and F4U fighters. Plus see recently discovered film of a B-29 crash and rescue of the crew by U.S. submarine.
