Colorized Aerial Combat Footage from World War II

Published Sept. 23, 2021

Historic footage recorded from the nose-mounted camera systems of several fighter planes shows scenes of aerial dog fights and close air support against Japanese controlled positions.


Combat footage from the past rarely looks this good, and even when it looks this good you feel like you're missing context or watching something that's hard to relate to because of the absence of color. That absence of color was a limitation of the time, and it kind of served as a barrier to keep war as some distant thing you weren't actually seeing when you watched the footage. This colorized footage does a much better job of preserving the history, and makes it far more relatable to modern war.


What we're looking at here is footage from the nose-mounted camera systems of World War 2 era fighter pilots. The footage contains scenes of American aircraft shooting down Japanese aircraft, and scenes of attack runs on key logistical command and control points for the Japanese military. There are also even a few scenes of close air support that are captured in this footage.
