|The V-2 in America - DVD |
While the use of the German V-2 (the world's first ballistic missile) during World War II is widely known, the story of its post-war testing in America remains largely untold - until now!
This DVD includes coverage of V-2 assembly, testing and launches in Nazi Germany at the Peenemünde research center; The V-2 in America, which examines post-World War II V-2 research at White Sands Proving Grounds and at Cape Canaveral; footage of a 1947 V-2 launch from the USS Midway (CV-41) and of Bumper WAC flights B-8 and B-7 (the first V-2 launches from the Cape Canaveral launch facility in 1950); the USAF-produced Guided Missiles; the 1963 film, The Cape; the documentary Laboratories Beyond the Sky; a "modeler's notes" audio track; and more. Color and B&W, 4 hrs. 25 min.
