Scenes from Operation Delaware by 1st Air Cavalry Division in the A Shau Valley during Vietnam War
Scenes from massive offensive by 1st Air Cavalry Division against the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) in A Shau Valley, during the Vietnam War. Film opens showing scattered wreckage of a U.S. Army UH-1H helicoptor damaged by enemy fire or by collision with obstacles during landing. As troops work to clear wreckage, another UH-1 lands precariously in the midst of debris. United States Army soldiers dismount. Other soldiers work around the crash site. Nearby, a contingent of troops is busy carving out a proper landing zone, using small tools and a number of chain saws. Two of them pass close by the camera, carrying a huge tree trunk. Troops employ chain saws close to one another as they work on the tangled underbrush and trees. In the background, one soldier chops smaller brush with a machete. (Note: It has been reported that these scenes depict elements of B Company, 227th Assault Helicopter battalion, at LZ Pepper, and the UH-1H seen landing might be from the 1st/9th "Head Hunters.") Location: A Shau Valley Vietnam. Date: April 22, 1968.

Great blue heron hunting and catching fish
Great blue heron (Ardea herodias) standing on a log in a river, waiting for fish to swim by before catching one with a lunging dive. Herons feed on fish, amphibians and a variety of aquatic invertebrates. These large, stealthy wading birds have wingspans of over two metres. They inhabit wetlands across North and Central America. The small fish this one catches and swallows is not for itself but will be regurgitated with several others for its hungry nestlings who are waiting in a nearby tree. Filmed in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio, USA. This clip is also available in 4K resolution.

KABC AERIALS - RIVER RESCUE ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST
AERIALS OF POLICE AND FIRE RESCUE CREWS AT THE SCENE WHERE HUNTERS WERE RESCUED Four missing hunters - who were expected home Sunday - have been found in what's described as a remote area of the Angeles National Forest, authorities said. Shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday, a Los Angeles County Fire Department helicopter spotted the missing hunters and hoisted two of them to safety. Two more hunters were found about 1,000 yards away and rescued, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The four, who became disoriented while hunting but had no immediate medical concerns, were transported to a command post and later to their vehicle, the sheriff's department said. The hunters were able to drive away without additional help. There was no information about the gender or ages of the hunters. The Montrose Search and Rescue Team initially searched for the lost hunters before hearing several gun shots as if to signal the searchers, authorities said. Altadena and Sierra Madre Search and Rescue teams assisted with the search. LASD Copter 15 responded to the incident because another aircraft, LASD Air 5, had been sent to a shooting in Azusa, authorities said. Initially, the four hunters were reported as Egyptian nationals but were of Turkish descent, authorities said. The Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station learned of the missing hunters at 11 a.m. Tuesday after family members contacted the Ventura County Sheriff's Office and the Torrance Police Department, according to an earlier press release. No information was given as to why these locations were selected to report the missing hunters.

Allied assaults against the German Gustav Line at Monte Cassino, Italy during World War II
Opening scene shows peaceful Italian mountains, including one snow-capped, in Spring, 1944, during World War 2. Camera focuses on the town of Monte Cassino and its historic Monastery, on a mountain above the town. (German forces held the Rapido-Gari, Liri and Garigliano valleys and some of the surrounding peaks and ridges that formed the heavily defended Gustav Line.) Animated relief map shows where, by mid January, 1944, American, Polish, and British forces had cleared the enemy from mountains east of Cassino and drawn up on the east side of the Rapido valley. Map shows progress of subsequent Allied attacks that finally reached Mount Castellone and then up Abbey Hill at Monte cassino, itself. Image of German soldier is superimposed on the scene, using binoculars on Abbey hilltop to observe Allied forces. (Narrator states: On February 9th, 75 yards from the abbey, we were stuck.") U.S. Army Air Forces Douglas A-20 Havoc aircraft are seen starting engines. Closeup of Fifth Army leaflet warning the local people to leave the Monte Cassino Abbey to avoid shelling and bombing. View of U.S. troops packing the leaflets into thin-skinned shells to deliver the warning by artillery fire. Next, 105 howitzer guns are seen under camouflage netting, firing bombardments of warning shells. Formation of A-20 aircraft taking off. Aerial view from high above, of B-25 bomber formation in flight. Formations of B-17s, B-24s, B-26s in flight enroute to bomb Monte Cassino. Bombs dropping from B-25 Mitchell bombers. Bombs exploding on Monte Cassino and the Abbey. Batteries of 155 mm guns firing. Formation of 6 B-25 bombers in formation. More bombs bursting on Monte Cassino. Animated map shows German forces taking up their earlier defenses again following the Allied artillery and air attacks. It also shows supplies streaming in to the German Green Devils Parachute Division (Luftwaffe's 1st Fallschirmjaeger [Parachute-Hunter] division.) The map illustrates all the locations in the town that they occupied and would defend to the last man. Map also illustrates circling positions of Allied artillery batteries. Camera focuses on Polish troops and M4 Sherman tanks moving forward in an offensive. Glimpse of U.S. Army Air Forces mechanics working on a Douglas bomber engine. M4 prime movers towing 155mm howitzer guns. Gun crews camouflaging their positions with netting. Various views of A 240mm howitzer being put in place by a crane. Soldiers deploy detector microphones to locate enemy gunfire sources. They test them, and then enclose them in water-proof containers, bury and cover them. Sound from the microphones being recorded on film at a machine in the Command Post. The data being plotted on a map and corresponding grid locations phoned to Battalion headquarters. View of bombers resuming attacks again, on March 15, 1944. Formations of Douglas bombers, followed by B-25s, seen dropping bombs that explode in the town of Monte Cassino. Artillery firing. Formation of B-24 Liberator bombers in flight. Formation of B-17s dropping bombs. String of bombs exploding in a line on the town. More views of artillery barrages. More lines of bombs exploding. Allied forces storming the shattered town found German soldiers using destroyed structures as shelters to fire from and rubble obstructing the movements of Allied tanks, so the Allied advance was again stopped.
