Full Description

This is a copy of two 1946 Aeronca promotional movies. It was originally on 16mm film. It was eventually transferred to VHS. The quality is fair, but the contents are very interesting. Especially if you are interested in Aeronca history. Contains two features:

* The Aeronca You'll Want To Fly

This is a film from Aeronca promoting the Aeronca Champion. It has many factory scenes showing the airplane being built through all the stages from welding, to fabric covering, to final assembly. They also show a young woman getting in and flying the Champion to the Middletown factory. That's how easy the airplane is to fly. It is about 40 minutes long. Its in color. It is scratchy and the color is faded in scenes, like our old 8mm films.

* Wings of Mercy

For you Chief fans, this is a 10 minute dramatization showing how a pre-war Aeronca Chief, configured as an air ambulance, can be used to ferry an injured patient from an accident scene to a hospital.
