About Our Video Scrapbooks: The HAFU Video Scrapbook Series is designed to provide enthusiasts with high quality collections of aviation film clips. These are not full documentary programs with running voice-over or narration. Rather each disk is a ‘scrapbook’ collection containing a variety of short film clips, generally between two to fifteen minutes long, which provide scenes and sounds of the aircraft in action, the like of which are rarely contained in documentary videos or shown on broadcast television.
