Hey dudes,
Been a while since I last posted anywhere here, but recently I stumbled across a whole series of videos hosted by Peninsula Seniors on youtube.
Before you start thinking what kind of time-shares I'm selling, they have created a series of aviation videos where they invite a speaker (or two) to give a lecture about a specific aspect or area of an aircraft, it's operation or development, at the Western Museum of Flight. The people are involved are usually pilots or occasionally engineers, and from what I've seen usually from Grumman/Northrop Grumman. They are very fascinating, and give a deeper look into the aircraft and their development that you don't get from random internet or wikipedia entries.

Peninsula Seniors Youtube Channel







There are far too many videos to list here without breaking my browser, so definitely check out the channel page.

There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I would had like to see the face of the Japanese and German pilots who saw a P-38 for the first time and likely their last time.







I wonder how they came up with that design in 1937-1938 when aircraft design was still coming out of World War 1 biplanes?

Kelly Johnson is the answer. He seemed to be well ahead of his time.

Playing the Monte Cassino batlles on Panzer General, I saw a German plane that looked exactly like a Lightning.

The Nazis copied the Lightning?

An American defector gave the Germans a perfectly good P-38 in the MTO.

Like ETO is for Europe but for the Mediterranean.

As a lot of videos in this thread have disappeared, it seems like a good idea to post some of my 'goto' channels for this sort of stuff.

Starting with aircraft:
https://www.youtube.com/user/Aircrewinterview/videos?pbjreload=10
seriously this is one of the best channels out there for the range of stuff covered. It does exactly what it says on the tin- it interviews aircrew (and the odd groundcrew)
I will have to put a warning or 2 on this:- your marriage may suffer biggrin and some of the interviewees use adult language:

https://www.youtube.com/user/Bis18marck70/videos
again lots of stuff, but more concentrating on the planes

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCynGrIaI5vsJQgHJAIp9oSg/videos
Greg does some fantastic 'in depth' stuff often with an engineering bent.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnZJt7yQw5IztVwe-Dscd-Q/videos
not as much content but his timelapse vids on specific air battles are great

https://www.youtube.com/user/FlightChops/videos
very much oriented towards those learning/improving their flying but HIGHLY recommended

and on the learning note I'll leave you with one video

it's an in cockpit vid of a P51 engine out with analysis and lessons learned). I cannot recommend this one highly enough.

Onto tanks:

https://www.youtube.com/user/TheTankMuseum/videos
One of the best tank museums in the world, so if you can't get there (and you should), just watch the vids.
If you like Tigers ( they run the only working Tiger I) then https://blog.tiger-tank.com/ is well wort a peruse.

https://www.youtube.com/user/TheChieftainWoT/videos
well he's not known as 'Tank Jesus' for nothing biggrin

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgPKCKrxMvtDLESFy8c2CMg/videos
another WoT'er, but has seriously 'upped her game' and hosts some really good experts

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChV4qbBKiBm1hcaqpjusMog/videos
relatively unknown channel, but the level of research/detail in his battle series is some of the best available. HIGHLY recommended.

And on to some Naval channels:-

Well it would be very rude not to list Drachinifel's channel first, he is simply superlative

https://www.youtube.com/c/Drachinifel/videos

for a little taste I would highly recommend these 2 vids ( if you don't cover your screen with coffee there's something wrong with you biggrin





A couple of other channels who sometimes colab with Drach

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx5-bVhJD0qTT0_A-zXKo0A/videos

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCE2x09tU0GwAGiSbFPEhIwQ/videos

And finally something for the underwater brigade

A rather interesting lecture on WWII engine development with some new information (the stuff on German alloys and it's effects I found very enlightening )

If you like this you may be interested in the lecturer's book on the subject?
