I agree with Felice. After looking at the image again it's clear that the French footage has been overprocessed. The contrast has been raised far too high in order to bring out the colours, but in doing so it has actually darkened the footage so that a lot of background detail is lost.It's a trade off that seems to be made in a lot of low budget remasters where the people in question have gone the 'noir-ish' route and amped up the contrast. It can make old grotty footage look more current, but in a sense the person in charge of the remaster is imposing a whole new look on the show, where the colours are bold and vivid but all the darker shades appear as a uniform black.If Bomber X is missing scenes as well, then it may not be the best choice for a definitive fan version.
