Naval Aviation Photography documentary shows missile, bomb, rocket release and impact in slow motion

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.
