Film footage of First Lieutenant Barty Brooks' deadly F-100 Super Sabre crash ended up being used in several Hollywood productions (see story here). Should the U.S. Air Force permit use of official footage like this in commercial releases?

    No, I do not agree with the Air Force permitting use of official crash footage in commercial releases. I have a personal connection to the footage of First Lt. Bart Brooks' crash. Bart was my uncle ,my mother's brother. My sisters and I all agree that this footage should never have been released to be used in commercial releases, unless permission was given by family members.
    Official crash footage should only be used for training purposes. I do agree that the footage should be released to family members if requested.
