Fail Safe ... Dr. Strangelove ... these two early '60s films made the public very nervous about the Strategic Air Command and its function - at least SAC thought so.
SAC produced a series of movies explaining their mission. The intention was for them to be shown to the public, but for some reason they never were.
Here is a link to those movies, archived by the NSA and made available over the internet by George Washington University. Corny, yes ... but there is some great footage in them. B-52s, B-58s, short tailed KC-135s, Hound Dogs, clouds of black smoke as plane after plane scramble into the air in alert drills.
Thanks to some posters over at WIX for digging up these links ...
