Tha'ts a Hurricane getting clobbered by a German plane, but if you do a search on that site, i'm sure you can find some more. I saw it posted on another site once with more links.

Funny thing how the Luftwaffe was more "mediatic" than the RAF, it take hard time to found some clips of the british planes, but the deustche guncams are plenty and available.

Not at all Panzerknacker, many of the gun camera films that still exist are now in private hands, and they don't see the light of day that often. If they do then the film may be lost for ever. By private hands, I don't mean private collectors but the people who may have handlend them for real during the war, or pilots who may have been presented them at the time to mark a good kill.

Many good artifacts only turnup when the owner has died and the new owner has a look for them. A whole Series of Dads' Army (a series set during the war) was thought to be lost until a few reals of the series was found in a potting shed when the owner died.

The majority of the gun camera film from the war, however, was skipped. There may be copyright concerns also.

This may turn up some leads

The Typhoon Dvd sounds good.

Sad, Nodody should "own" that film, if there was taken with state propety cameras and armament like is a RAF aircraft.

That is something I love about the Lufwaffe, every footage is available, I suppose must be that the dictatorial states needed (need) more publicity for its achievements. Or perhaps not, since all sides "inflated " his victories in the war.
