Behind the Scenes of the 51st Fighter Interceptor Wing
This movie is over an hour long and features many aspects of daily life at the air base. This is not a government propaganda film. It is a new production from newly rescued footage. The film takes a look behind the scenes at building the base, F-86 aircraft, maintenance and operations, mess hall fun, recreation, surrounding area tour, combat operations and of course, loads of footage of the F-86 Sabre jet in operation. At the time this movie was shot, Colonel Francis “Gabby” Gabreski was the base commander. Colonel Gabreski was the leading WWII ace from the ETO and went on to become a “jet age” ace a few weeks before these scenes were shot.
