    I'm looking for WWII footage of any type of plane or other aircraft. Shots of paratroopers parachuting would be great too.....where could I find this?

    .mov format would be nice!

    Thank you,
    Seth

    Try Pathe News. Their archives of footage go back to the 1890s. Low res video is free for private use.

    The Pathe only has WMV for download, I can't use those too well, and all their movies how "The British Pathe Preview" on them while they're playing.

    Anything else out there?

    Try the library, they should have plenty of historical DVD's available for rent...

    The library might work, but I'm looking to save .mov files for use in iMovie. I just need a few shots of a US bomber or other type of plane. WMV and Flash won't work here.

    you can use QT to open the DVD's *.VOB files and then just select the portion you want and save as *.mov... that's how I made some of my avatars for other forums.

    Sorry, didn't realise they were still using WMV. I had an e-mail from them about six months ago saying that they were moving over to Quicktime, and I would've thought they'd have transfered at least some of the footage by now... :rolleyes:
