    RCUniverse.com Looks into AeroCinema.com


    Not long ago, RCUniverse asked me to look into a new website called, "AeroCinema.com". I thought, "What a concept - A website totally devoted to aircraft and aerospace videos!"

    Membership is $9.95 for a 3-month trial period, with each additional 3 month period costing $19.95. At first I thought this was a little pricy, but then I realized that I pay 4 times that to watch one or two channels on my worthless cable system, so I got a 3-month subscription and started browsing.

    The site is very well organized and a non-member may view trailers of the videos to see if they look appealing. It also gives you the opportunity to check out the quality of the clip.

    It didn't take long before I was neck-deep in aviation clips! There is an immense variety of videos to sort through, with 10 new videos added each month. Topics like, "Race for the Superfortress", "Death of the Luftwaffe", "Canards of War", etcetera are among the list.



    While there is the occasional film grain, most of the video quality is excellent and professionally narrated. Many also include interviews with the actual participants in the stories.



    Aside from the actual aircraft videos, there are other areas such as, "Reflections" where real people tell first hand accounts of episodes from surviving a shoot-down to what it was like being a "Rosie the Riveter". There is also an "AeroSource" page that has links to stats and comments of some of the WWII era aircraft.



    If you prefer to browse before signing up, there is a free area where you may view previews and trailers of some of the videos which are available. A sample of the trailers can be viewed by clicking the images above.



    So if you're an aviation buff like me (And if you're not, what are you doing on THIS website?), Pop over to www.AeroCinema.com and browse around for a while. You just may become as addicted to it as I am!
