Dear Mr. Watts,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a film titled BOEING CLIPPER - BOMBER FOR ENGLAND in the series titled Moving Images Relating to Military Aviation Activities, 1947-1984 in the Records of U.S. Air Force Commands, Activities, and Organizations (Record Group 342). Other film about the Clipper may be included in newsreels on the period. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Motion Pictures (RDSM) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Photographs of various U.S. Army, Navy, and Marine Corps activities for WWII are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Still Picture (RDSP). Please contact RDSS via email at email@example.com.
