Please add this film from Jim Hale to our web-site. The hope is to possibly be able to identify these early Matador crewmen depicted in the film. It is more than likely in the early 50’s possibly at the Cape/Patrick AFB area. Bob, you might be able to use this in the newsletter.

Max…  I found this film in the museum archive. It was probably supposed to have a soundtrack, but that seems to be missing and the color quality is degraded.

Obvious question I have for you…have you seen it before? Does it have any significance or interest for you. The few visual clues (48 star flag, for instance) place it in the early 1950s.

Let me know what you think.
