Summary:Shows how the Air Force developed heavy presses for their airplane development program. Starting with a lessons learned from its one domestic press and two presses acquired from Germany after the war, the Air Force sponsored the building of the largest and most powerful presses in the world. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
