Where was this footage found? This is great! I was at this concert, in the front row, right in front of Jimmy Page the entire show. This San Bernardino show was on a Thurs night....I was at the LA Forum the following Sunday when Zep played again. What a great weekend that was. Thanks for finding this!

Wish I could have been there, I was only 2 years old at the time. I remember driving by The Swing with my mother and saw first hand the damage the plane caused. If memory serves right the plane was still resting on top. Later when I was older I got to see Page & Plant at the Hollywood Bowl, with mom believe it or not. I loved it! I wish the guys/Led Zeppelin would get something going soon. I really want to see them as I'm sure a good portion of the mother earth would. Please guy's come out and play!?

Jimmy, you're the man ............... that up and down the neck while you're holding the guitar above you're head. I'm 38 years old and I still think you guys are the best that ever was.

Actually it was not a cropduster that crashed into the Swing Auditorium but a small private plane that I believe carried the owner of the "Don Jose" Mexican restaurant chain.

Ha, great to see this. I was at this concert. A seminal point in my life. My friend and I were unable to hear for several days (the Swing let you stand right in front of the stege); however, it was well worth the experience. Is it possible that the ENTIRE concert was filmed? If so, how might one obtain a copy?

Take care all...
