• Short Summary

    American airforce bombing practice on Mohave Dessert.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Bullseye bombing. American Airmen record hits from 10,000 feet".

    Mojave Desert, California, United States of America (USA).

    Airmen load 300 lb. bombs onto American Airforce (U.S. Army) bombers. The aeroplanes have skull and crossbones on their noses. Good C/U of man screwing (what looks like) propeller into bomb. Good M/S, looking up at undercarriage of plane, of bomb bay doors closing.

    The aeroplanes fly in formation over target marked on dessert (a large battleship-shape). Some good low angle C/Us of pilots in cockpit. We see target being bombed - lots of shots of explosions. Some great shots taken through open bomb hatch of bombs falling towards ground.

    Note: for search purposes also use Mohave.
