U.S. Navy aircraft carrier planes of Task Force 58 strafe Japanese ships, aircraft and factories near Tokyo in 1945 during World War Two. Quite a bit of good wwII gun camera / GSAP footage in this one.

  1. Even if they didn't destroy the ship, it still rattled the hell out of the crew's nerves. I've been shot at by mortars, RPGs and small arms but I don't even want to know what it's like to be on the business end of a strafing run. Each plane has at least six .50 cal machine guns, putting about 100 rounds per second on the target. Keep in mind, just one .50 cal bullet is enough to take you out of the fight. Get hit in the arm or leg, and you lose that arm or leg. Get hit in the body or head and you're going to die.

  2. Interesting to note that "1500 planes took part in the attack"….almost five times as many as attacked Pearl Harbor a mere 3 years before. Yamamoto was right.
