Maynard Hill, who has died aged 85, made his mark on aviation history in 2003 when one of his remote-controlled model aircraft became the first to fly a record-breaking 1,882 miles across the Atlantic on less than a gallon of fuel.
Can you imagine an airshow today with the following aircraft?: Ju88, Arado 234, Me-262, Me-163, Ju-290, A6M Zero, Macchi 202, Spitfire, Bf-108, B-32 Dominator, B-24. B-17, B-29, B-25. Thunderbolt low passes, Waco glider aerial pckup, Mitchells doing low-level bombing demos, etc..... not to mention the Heinkel 111, Me-410, German helicopters, V-2 and V-1 rockets, early C-82........!!!
This is a compilation of two films shot during the September, 1945 airshow at Freeman Field. The aircraft seen both in the air and on the ground are nothing short of spectacular. Many of the remaining captured aircraft have yet to arrive.
