The blurb reads :
This is a World War II rescued film that was taken by one of the members of the 352nd Fighter Group. The 352nd was also known as the Bluenosed Bastards of Bodney. The film features the 487th Fighter Squadron known as callsign Crownprince. What is unusual about this film are the early model P-51 aircraft shown, painting kills on the side of the Mustang and showing how the 50 caliber guns were serviced on the P-51.

Thanks for sharing! That video is the one that Joe Noah purchased and had preserved. I believe Sam or Punchy has copies of the video. I highly recommend it as some of the footage is in color and there are some great shots of Preddy. It is an amazing find.
