The P-47 Thunderbolt  WW2 Prop Fighter.
The Videos and DVD movies listed here will show a tremendous amount about the P-47 and its history.

The P-47 Thunderbolt was used  in the fighter groups of nine U.S. Air Forces spread across the globe during WWII. It  was also used by numerous foreign air forces. The P-47 ‘Jug’ was legendary for its  power and ruggedness as it conducted fighter sweep, bomber escort, and ground   attack missions in every theater of the war.   The 350th Fighter Group in the Mediterranean Campaign 2 November, 1942 to 2 May 1945. The group comprised the 345th, 346th, and 347th Fighter Squadrons, flying  against the Luftwaffe during the Moroccan, Tunisian, Sicilian and Italian campaigns in P-39s and P-47s.  Although initially thought to be burdened with a craft too large,  heavy, and un maneuverable, the P-47 pilots eventually acquired the skills they needed to counter the nimble  Luftwaffe fighters. And the introduction of P-47Cs in mid-1943, with their added external tanks, improved the pilot's combat radius.  Although it recorded 3,916 kills as a fighter, the P-47 was later used primarily as a ground-attack aircraft, destroying thousands of tanks, locomotives, rail cars, and trucks.  Production P-47 Thunderbolts were in the air in early 1943, excelling in bomber escort and ground-attack bombing. P-47s were flown by the air forces of Australia, Brazil, France, the Soviet Union, and Great  Britain--more than 12,000 planes in all, more than any other U.S. fighter before or since.  This collection of Movies, Videos and DVD Movies about the P-47 Thunderbolt will show you the real capabilities of the P-47.

B00000FBOZRoaring Glory, Vol. 5: Republic Thunderbolt P-47 (1998) 
Best Fighter of WWII, September 27, 2002  DVD
A viewer (Brantford, Ontario Canada) 
This is the Warbird I would have wanted to be in with my life on the line. My humble opinion is that this is the best fighter of WWII. This  DVD is great for the detail, the video quality, the multi-angles, and much more. I love to watch the landing from the pilot's point of view,  it makes you feel like you're flying the plane yourself. You can hear that beautiful, throaty roar of the massive Pratt & Whitney, you can  almost smell the burning oil. The Family Photo Album is great, even the mini-movie is good, with actual WWII footage. The pilot's  manual is also great. Another must-have DVD for Warbird fans.

This video features three accidents with the P-47 that could have been avoided. Training officers take you through the "do's" and "don'ts" of flying the P-47. 40 min.

Webmasters Note:  One of my long time friends, Jack Long a AT6 Fighter Pilot Instructor then a B-29 Pilot, told me a story about his first experience with the P-47.  He was stationed at a training base in Florida when a pilot came to show the squadron the new P-47.  Jacks Commanding Officer took the plane for his first test ride and flew past the troops who were watching on the ground.  Jacks Commander flew by at full speed then pulled back on the stick for a quick climb.  This is a DON'T.  The plane went into a high speed stall and instantaneous horizontal spin only fifty feet from the ground.  Jacks Commander recovered, flew around the pattern then landed.  He told his troops, "I almost got killed."   This is one of the DON'T's of flying a Warbird.  Don't Show Off.     C.

Fighter Squadron
This is an older movie starring Robert Stack. It is about a P-47 Squadron. The German planes are actually P-51Ds. I don't remember when it was made, but it was in the '50s and it is in color.
Good flying sequences.

Last spring the North Pole temperature was only -1 degree F.
 We flew an ultralight, 6 balloon pilots logged their North Pole flights,
We had five jumpers who entered their jumps in their logbooks,
there was a man in a wheelchair who made it to the pole,
We had several helicopters, a home built airplane, a jet
and an An-2 Biplane there.  Everyone got to visit Star City (Russia's NASA)
the Kremlin Armory, and Red Square.  The Expedition members flew in
Russian Military aircraft including the An-24, An-74, and the Mi-8.  They also
visited Khatanga and saw the Woolly Mammoth Digs, and Shrednij Island's
Russian, formerly secret, ICBM base and more. The trip was inexpensive
