Summary: Aircraft recognition film describing the US Douglas A-26 Invader.
Description: A model of the A-26 shown from an overhead view is used for an introduction. The film then shows simulated footage of low-level bombing over France and ground air support swooping on Nazi tanks. A model of the aircraft is shown head-on, from the rear view, in plan form and from the side. The model is used to go back over the main points and emphasises the importance of the shape in creating a total impression. Recognition highlights are then given final emphasis.
