Perishable Rush (DVD)

Transport aircraft of WWII were the unsung heros of the battlefield and air.  Planes like the C-54, C-47, C-46, L-5 and PBY. This is a wartime documentary about medical evacuation in the Pacific, from the battlefield to rear hospital bases, and home. Although it could be considered propoganda by today's standards, the film shows some spectacular footage of air rescue and transport operations.

Rare Aviation's Steve Rhodes has converted this film to a digital format, and has just released it, as a very resonably priced DVD.  Highly recommended for anyone interested in this topic, or for great footage of transport planes in action! Also, see Rare Aviation's related release, Army Air Forces Pacific DVD.
