Default The Checkertail Clan

Came across this excellent documentary last night. Indepth interviews with 325th Checkertail pilots and crewmen.


2h36m


2h35m

And I believe this to be the 3rd part, its archive footage of 325th.

2h42m

After having watched the first two links above, I think link 2 first then link 1 is the more correct order. 2nd link (Checkertails Part 2 - The History of the 325th Fighter Group in WW2) follows them from beginning to end, including many pilot and crew interviews.
Link 1 is more pilot and crew interviews.

Great great stuff.

And actually no. Just read the comments of Part 2, and Part 1 is removed due to copyright issues.
Part 2 is too actually, the one they link to from their website: http://checkertails.org/
But some further digging, from their facebook page, they link to a google drive where you can grab all 3 parts.
