Postwar World War II Hijinks by airmen at 20th Bomber Command Headquarters in Guam, Marianas Islands
Guam Marianas Islands Date:1945, September 21 Duration:1 min 41 sec Sound:NO SOUND
About a month after the end of World War 2, .Airmen at the 20th Bomber Command Headquarters create a comic movie about a B-29 aircrew. The aircraft windows are blacked out or fogged out. Three "aircrew" are seen sitting in a B-29 aircraft. Two sing while the third plays a harmonica. In the cockpit, the "pilot" holds a silk stocking in hand. He kisses it and places it in his jacket. On "final approach" to land, the "pilot" has placed the silk stocking over his control pedestal. He manipulates the yoke as if controlling the aircraft, then starts to pull back all four throttles, but has difficulty, until he remembers to release the throttle lock, and then pulls them back, pretending to land the B-29.
