Finnish Air Force WW2 video: "Bomber pilots"

Since the response to the previous film clip was so good, here is another:

Finnish Armed Forces present
Newsflash (Journal) Number 69:
Bomber pilots
 http://www.byterapers.com/~grendel/scan/aviation/puolustusvoimat_esittaa-katsaus_69-pommituslentajat.mpg

Lenght: 6:43
Size: 69 MB

The film tells a story of one unspecified bomber mission and begins with a comment "you don't go to a  trip without some luggage". Basically it shows how the bomber formation flies to target, bombs it short flash of Soviet fighters and then some extremerely low level flying as the bombers dive for  the deck and return to base NOE. The target seems to be a Soviet railway depot.

I have no idea to what year this film dates to.

The bombers are from Lentolaivue 46 (Flying Squadron 46, later Bomber Squadron 46), as it was the only squadron operating the Dornier Do 17 Z bombers in Finnish Air Force. Lentolaivue 46 was equipped with the Dorniers in winter 1941/early 1942, and received the first three planes 5.1.1941. The Dornier bombers operated first against Soviet forces until the armistice, and then in the Lappland War 1944-1945 against Germans. Last flight with the type in Finland 13.9.1948.

I personally like their formation flying a lot. Hell, big bombers and almost wing to wing. Really got to admire the skill of those pilots, thats some professional flying.

And this is available for a limited time only, so if you're going to grab it, do it now.

As long as I don't have 100% information about copyrights or whether it is permissable to show there I'm only keeping them available for short time period as a small gift to the fellow virtual pilots.
