United States Air Force Training and Documentary Film Collection

Norton Air Force Base, California housed the Department of Defense Motion Media Depository until the 1980s when a new facility was planned at March Air Force Base, California. As part of the move to the new facility, many of the items in the depository were to be disposed of by offering them first to the originating agency and then to the National Archives and Record Administration (NARA). Items deemed obsolete and not wanted by either the originating agency or NARA were offered to the National Air and Space Museum (NASM). NASM selected a number of the films based on collection criteria in place at the time of the donation
