Summary: Second World War aircraft recognition film, showing the Junkers Ju 88. Film uses diagrams, film footage and models.
Description: German film shows Ju 88 being wheeled out bomb attached, Ju 88s taking off and in flight, cockpit views, over the sea and over a coastal town, diving and releasing four bombs. Plane used in the recognition sequence which follows is a captured Ju 88 with RAF markings and camouflage. Plane is shown in flight and superimposed diagrams on frozen frames highlight its salient features. A cartoon sketch depicts the crew "sitting in a friendly huddle in the bulbous glazed cabin". After a stock-shot alarm, ack-ack, crash sequence (blazing plane crashes, bounces, sinks in sea), salient recognition points are recapitulated.
