    Curtiss SB2C Helldiver

    This DVD is about the amazing "Curtiss SB2C Helldiver". This plane was the replacement to the Douglas SBD Dauntless Dive Bomber. Hated at first, it was known as the "Beast" to many, but after the bugs were worked out, the plane became effective aircraft in the fleet.

    1st Film: "Flying the Curtiss SC2B Helldiver". This is a great film created by USN about how to fly the Helldiver. This is a very nice print and the plane is put through it's passes. Start-ups, Bomb load types, flying, takeoffs and landings, stalls, and of course, Diving!. Amazing. 32:18 Min's
