I don’t know when it was produced. Maybe in the ’60s or ’70s. Still, I think this documentary about Naval Aviation Photography is extremely interesting about half a century later.
You can learn a bit more about the way bombs, missiles, rockets and even naval aviation planes are (actually “were”) filmed, and you’ll discover that back then, 1 million frame per second cameras were already available to film weapon impact and explosions in slow motion.

First 1 million frame a second cameras came out for the US nuclear program, first 1 million frame a second use I can find was for some above ground tests from 1960-’63
