FLAK


FLAK: Evading Anti-Aircraft Fire for World War 2 Pilots (Restored 1943)

Good overview of WW2 anti-aircraft gunnery and 'evasive action'. I always thought 'evasive action' meant jinking randomly, give 'em the old dodge and weave. Turns out it is carefully choreographed. The film is for Allied bomber crews attacking Axis targets. The Brits had their own similar anti-aircraft installations all over Great Britain. Previous posts about anti-aircraft.

Update August 2015 replaced missing video.
