Nike Rocket Destroys B17 Bomber (super dramatic music!). Worth watching until the end as a super missile hits a B17 bomber and the music goes in to over drive! Filmed in 1954. Thanks to those people who have spotted that this is a B17 even though the notes say B29.
BRITISH PATHÉ'S STORY Before television, people came to movie theatres to watch the news. British Pathé was at the forefront of cinematic journalism, blending information with entertainment to popular effect. Over the course of a century, it documented everything from major armed conflicts and seismic political crises to the curious hobbies and eccentric lives of ordinary people. If it happened, British Pathé filmed it.
Now considered to be the finest newsreel archive in the world, British Pathé is a treasure trove of 85,000 films unrivalled in their historical and cultural significance.
