This film was produced by the United States Air Force in the late 1950's for internal training purposes however it has now been declassified. The film depicts a simulated war plan action, in the event of an hydrogen bomb attack, which was executed at the Operation Control Room, Offutt Air Force Vase, Nebraska, and at the underground control room (location still classified), by the Strategic Air Command.

Footage includes pilots and ground crewmen scrambling; pilots boarding aircraft; B-47's, B-52's, and B-58's taxiing, taking off, maneuvering, and landing; and a KC-135 refueling a B-52. Also included are scenes of the launching of the Bull Goose, Rascal, Snark, and Thor missiles.

The source files for this film were made available courtesy the National Security Archive at The George Washington University. Further details at http://www.archive.org/details/AirFor...

Note: I have applied a lot of image processing to improve the quality of the original source film, compare it to the other youtube versions and you'll see quite a difference. .
