We're huge fans of Periscope Film, a company that has been actively preserving orphaned and neglected motion pictures for two decades. This includes rare and wonderful films about the world of aviation from the Wright Brothers to the Space Age.

In addition, Periscope Film has preserved and published a series of historic warbird and X-plane pilot manuals, and published a series of DVDs and Blu-ray discs of their historic films. See them on Amazon at this link: Periscope Film on Amazon

We've got their permission to share some of their celluloid-to-digital archive on AeroController™. Check out a snippet from their "HILARIOUS EARLY EXPERIMENTAL AIRCRAFT U.S. ARMY AIR CORPS 84430 HD" video below.

PS: Some other fun aircraft at times 3:00, 7:00, 10:00, 11:00 in the video.
