Fight and Flight. And Cars, too.
March 8, 2012 2:06 PM   Subscribe has three Youtube channels: The eponymous AIRBOYD features 2000+ videos for "aviation and aerospace enthusiasts. Then there's the Nuclear Vault: Vintage Military, War and News Videos, with 1200+ full-length documentaries, news reels and other assorted footage, including 200 episodes of "The Big Picture (Army Signal Corps)" and a variety of Atomic and Nuclear energy films. Last but not least is US Auto Industry, an archive of over 450 vintage automobile films, including commercials from Buick, Pontiac, Chevy and Ford.

Surprisingly, the extensive Nuclear Vault archive does not include SAC Command Post, one of several attempts by the US Air Force (and the Pentagon) to counter Hollywood stereotypes about the military during the 1960's

Jimmy Stewart was great in SAC Command Post. You could almost see the sexual tension between him and Harry Morgan June Allyson.

I wonder if there's a way to get the Nuclear Vault channel to play inside of Fallout New Vegas. Fascinating stuff.
