www.zenoswarbirdvideos...TINEE.html


* How to Fly the Bell P-39 Airacobra NEW -- digitally restored. The P-39 was one of the U.S. Army Air Corps front line fighters when world War 2 broke out in the Pacific, but was soon replaced as more advanced aircraft like the P-38 when they became available. It's mid-engine and 37mm canon were virtually unique. This film covers all aspects of flying the P-39, including takeoffs, landings, aerobatics like rolls and loops, and how to control spins & stalls.

*P-39s in the News -1942 NEW Restored Color Three short newsreels featuring the Bell Airacobra shown to the American people during World War 2. The first film shows the Bell Aircraft P-39 assembly line in Niagara Falls, New York. Then you'll see P-39s taking target practice. Finally, you'll see Airacobras and P-63 King Cobras flown across the Bering Strait under Lend Lease to Russia. Unlike the US Army Air Force, these aircraft were prized by the Soviets, who used them for ground attack & tank busting.

* 9th Air Force 362 FG P-47 Thunderbolts in Action Digitally restored Color I produced this original documentary from dark, faded silent gun camera film footage from the Spring of 1945 over Germany. I've been able to restore it using digital technology. I've added additional info about the pilots and planes and added real P-47 Thunderbolt sound effects. Featured pilots from the 362nd FG are Alvin Lieberman, Robert A Jackson and the legendary Wilfred Crutchfield, flying his P-47 "Kentucky Colonel," attacking a wide variety of ground targets in March, 1945.

*The General Dwight D Eisenhower Story NEW -- digitally restored. Covers the life story of "Ike" Eisenhower from his humble beginnings, to West Point, through World War 1, as a rising star between the Wars, and then as Supreme Allied Commander in Europe during World War 2. Eisenhower combined high intelligence, insight, and a grasp of strategy & tactics with a unique ability to manage the fractious coalition of nations and personalities that made up the Allied Forces in Europe.

*The Story of the Black Cat PBYs Digitally restored with exclusive additional material. What was that mysterious plane swooping down out of the night sky on unsuspecting Japanese ships and bases, hundreds of miles from any known American airstrip? The answer was, as you'll see in this good humored film, the slow, ungainly, but deadly "Black Cat" PBY. Originally designed as a reconnaissance and antisubmarine amphibious patrol plane, the big twin engined Catalina's super long range, all weather capability, capacity to lug both bombs and radar, ability to loiter for hours hunting convoys and operate from anywhere in the Pacific without an air strip, made it an ideal naval night attack bomber.

* Catapulting Off A World War 2 Carrier (Restored) Small World War II aircraft carriers depended on their catapults to operate aircraft. This unique film offers a rare look at how US Navy carrier crews were trained to operate catapults to launch aircraft, even from very short decks.

*Submarine Warfare in the Pacific This film was completed shortly after the end of the War and contains rare footage on US submarine operations you won't find anywhere else. There is a cameo appearance by Japanese Fleet Admiral Nagano who discusses (in English) the effect of US sub operations on the ability of the Japanese to make war. That's because the "pig boats" inflicted military and transport losses on the enemy that were far beyond their own tiny numbers.

* Denmark Fights for Freedom NEW -- digitally restored The recent tragedy in Denmark (February, 2015) brings to mind the Dane's amazing national fight for free speech & democracy against the German occupation in World War 2, values that endure (and are still challenged) to this day. What if an entire nation stayed home & refused to show up at work to fight an enemy occupation? You'll see that & much more in this dramatic documentary film, surreptitiously shot and smuggled out during the occupation.

We also show 1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy films and pilot's manuals on how to fly the F4U, F6F, P-38, P-39, P-40, P-47, P-51, P-61, TBF/TBM, AT-6/SNJ, B-17, B-24, B-25, A-20, A-26, B-26, B-29, and Stearman N2S. Alert! - Don’t miss the F-86, B-47 & B-58.

*“Last Bomb” Outtakes: B-29s & P-51s & more (Exclusive- Restored Color + SFX) NEW Recently discovered silent reel of outtakes, expanded scenes, and new footage from the Academy Award winning World War 2 B-29 classic, "The Last Bomb." Includes never before seen footage showing a B-29 engine repair facility on Saipan, expanded scenes showing General Curtis Le May and XX Bomber Command planning a mission to Tokyo, inside the cockpit photos from an actual B-29 mission and more. I've added real sound effects taken from B-29s,P-51s and 50 cal. machine guns. And there's a big bonus for fighter fans. The section of the original film that shows P-51 Mustang squadrons ranging over the Japanese mainland after targets of opportunity is expanded , yielding some of the most exciting color gun camera footage we have seen from World War 2.

*The General George S Patton Story - Narrated by Ronald Reagan. NEW Restored Get the full story of George Patton, from his graduation from West Point through his untimely death right after World War 2. Patton was a key figure in developing the principles of armored warfare. A brilliant tactician and a controversial leader he led American forces to victory in campaigns in North Africa, Sicily, across France, in the Battle of the Bulge and then deep into Germany .

* The 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam (Restored Color) NEW -- digitally restored The Black Horse Regiment” was a uniquely independent unit, functioning as an armored fist, re-enforcing other units in battle and in a wide variety of other roles including convoy escort through enemy infested territory and jungle clearing. East of Saigon in III Corps, they were responsible for numerous firsts that you'll see used in combat, including developing armored vehicles for local conditions like the ACAV Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicle, a an essential upgrade of the M133 APC with much better armor, additional weaponry & steel shields to protect gunners. The 11th were also the first to operate the Army's innovative new M551 Sheridan AR/AAV light tank.

*354th Fighter Group P-51 "Mustang Pioneers" (Exclusive Documentary - Restored Color)
This is an updated revision of a documentary I created 6 years ago with added sound effects and exclusive footage of Lt. B W Carr climbing out of a captured German FW 190 fighter . I digitally restored the color, added graphics and music etc. Rare color film of the legendary 354 Fighter Group, with over 700 Kills, the highest scoring American unit in Europe. You'll see great aces like G.T. Eagleston and B.W. Carr at work and at play in their newly captured base in Germany in Spring, 1945, only a few months before war's end. Amazing color gun camera film!

*The Bulge: The Battle at St Vith This remarkable documentary combines eyewitness testimony from an all star cast of key participants on both sides of a critical engagement in the Battle of the Bulge with outstanding archival footage, detailed maps, and a return to revisit the actual terrain where each phase of battle was fought.

* School for Danger: SOE & French Resistance Fight the German Occupation - Restored 1945 This is one the most exciting World War 2 espionage films you'll see. What's unique is that the characters play themselves performing the roles they executed during World War 2 -- from British secret agents to French Resistance fighters to special mission RAF pilots and operational commanders.

*The Fleet that came to Stay Kamikaze attacks off Okinawa 1945 In March, 1945, the US Army, Navy and Marines, with the support of the British Pacific Fleet, launched "Operation Iceberg" against the Japanese Island of Okinawa, in the Ryukus,The Japanese flew 1,900 sorties, sinking dozens of Allied ships and killing more than 5,000 U.S. sailors at the cost of 1,465 kamikaze planes. 2,200 other Japanese and 763 U.S. aircraft were also destroyed during the battle "Operation Iceberg" against the Japanese Island of Okinawa, in the Ryukus,The Japanese flew 1,900 sorties, sinking dozens of Allied ships and killing more than 5,000 U.S. sailors at the cost of 1,465 kamikaze planes. 2,200 other Japanese and 763 U.S. aircraft were also destroyed during the battle.

Escorted by RAF Spit Vs & IXs, 6 bombers ran a diversion along the French coast, while 12 more Fortresses attacked the primary target, the important rail yards at Sotteville, France, near Rouen.(Get this video & six more on our US Bombers Go to War DVD)

*Faces of Rescue: A downed F-105 Pilot is rescued from the Vietnamese jungle NEW Restored Color F-105 flight leader Lt. James Devoss gives a dramatic account of his rescue, severely injured, from enemy held jungle during the Vietnam War. You'll hear the story of his last mission from takeoff through pickup by a CH-3 "Jolly Green Giant" helicopter after being shot down, including actual footage of the rescue.

You'll see B-29 pilots & crews on R&R and on mission in their magnificent Boeing B-29 Superfortresses. You'll see a gallery of memorable 73rd Bomb Wing nose art too -- all in living color with high impact stereo sound.

*Recognition of the Junkers Ju 88 There's some very good Ju 88 footage here, including of one of the intact examples that landed in Britain. Originally designed for the Luftwaffe as a fast ("schnell") medium bomber in the 1930s, the 88 ended up performing more roles than any other aircraft in World War 2, including bomber, dive bomber, night fighter, torpedo bomber, reconnaissance aircraft, heavy fighter and as a flying bomb late in the War. More than 16,000 examples were rolled off the assembly line, making it the most produced German twin engine aircraft in the War.

* Merrill's Marauders & the 88th Fighter Squadron in Burma (Restored) This amazing film contains all known footage of Merrill's Marauder's 5307th Composite Unit (provisional) secret deep penetration mission behind Japanese lines through the Burmese jungle to capture the airfield at Myitkyina in 1944. The last third of the film is an up close look at 88th Fighter Squadron P-40 dive bombers flying out of the captured Myitkyina airfield, supplying very close air support for the Marauder's assault on the town itself.

* Land & Live in the Arctic for downed World War 2 Airmen A P-40 pilot has engine trouble & a radio malfunction and makes a crash landing in deep snow & trees in the far North. Gradually he remembers what he was taught to survive in the Arctic, or figures it out for himself -- the hard way. Lots of useful cold weather survival skills are shown in detail.

* Acrobatics for World War 2 Fighter Pilots featuring the Fairchild PT-19 NEW --digitally restored This Army Air Corps training film covers the basic acrobatic maneuvers every fighter pilot should master before heading into combat, including Immelmans, loops, snap, half & slow rolls, vertical reverses and more

*This is the Army NEW Restored Color - Holiday Special This wonderful film is a great example of the kind of the buoyant Hollywood musical shown at home & to troops around the World in the midst of World War 2. Directed by Michael Curtis, it features an all star musical cast headed by George Murphy, aided by Ronald Reagan, with a long list of memorable tunes that will have you singing them after it's over.

* The Case of the Tremendous Trifle: Planning a World War 2 Bombing Mission NEW -- digitally restored This fascinating film shows how intelligence sources, including spies, interrogations of refugees & POWs, aerial reconnaissance and seemingly innocuous sources like corporate parts catalogs were tied together and used in the strategic planning and execution of one of the epic missions of World War 2, the bombing of the ball bearing plants at Schweinfurt, Germany.

*416th BG 2-26 Invaders Attack! (Exclusive Documentary - Restored Color) Legendary SFP 186 Army Air Force combat cameramen rode along with 416th Bomb Group A-26 Invaders during March and April, 1945 with color film loaded in their cameras. The results are some of the most beautiful and dramatic footage to come out of the World War II. An added bonus is a cache of remarkable still pictures taken by 416th Group (668th, 669th, 670th and 671st Bomb Squadrons) staff photog "Sergeant Cachat" showing A-26s and their crews.

*Profile of a World War 2 Test Pilot Not only is this a great film about what it took to be a World War 2 test pilot, there's rare shots of experimental aircraft at Wright Field, seen nowhere else.

* Clark Gables Combat America (Restored Color) "Combat America" was produced, written, directed, and narrated by Clark Gable while he was on assignment with the 8th Air Force, developing a gunnery training film. Though it packs plenty of very exciting color combat footage and doesn't flinch in showing high cost of the war in the air, in many ways, it's as much a warm home movie as a hard bitten, wartime "information" film.

* B-58 Hustler First Flight (Restored Color) On Veterans Day, Nov 11th, 1956 Convair's revolutionary delta wing B-58 "Hustler" supersonic bomber took to the skies for the first time, piloted by B. A, Ericson. You'll see both the low and high speed taxi testing, including front wheel lift off, that proceeded the B-58's first flight, delivering excellent footage of the silvery prototype from a number of angles.

* Mastering the Thompson Submachine Gun: Marksmanship Everything you need to know to become a crack shot with a "Tommy Gun:" Blackening your sights using an open flame. Triangulating your sights for accuracy. Estimating range. Firing positions: Standing, kneeling, prone and seated. How to neutralize muzzle climb, even during extended bursts and more.

We also show 1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy films and pilot's manuals on how to fly the F4U, F6F, P-38, P-39, P-40, P-47, P-51, P-61, TBF/TBM, AT-6/SNJ, B-17, B-24, B-25, A-20, A-26, B-26, B-29, and Stearman N2S. Alert! - don't miss the F-86, B-47 & B-58!

*The 10th Armored Division in World War 2 NEW! Brad Pitt's blockbuster film 'Fury" has sparked a lot of interest in World War 2 tankers. This is the true story of the US 10th Armored Division "Tigers." who served with distinction with George Patton's 3rd Army from the Fall of 1944 through the defeat of Germany in 1945.This thorough documentary, prepared by the US Army's Pictorial Center after the war, combines excellent archival film footage, comprehensive maps and in depth interviews with key 10th Armored personnel from Commanding General William H.H. Morris down the chain of command to front line NCOs.

* P-38s Shoot Down Admiral Yamamoto NEW --digitally restored See the P-38 Squadron that shot down Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, one of imperial Japan's leading strategists, in an incredible long distance interception in the Pacific. Includes purported P-38 gun camera footage of the Admiral's Betty going down in flames. This truly amazing interception -- the result of super secret code breaking and meticulous planning-- was one of the most astounding feats in World War 2.

* German Radar detection & signals jamming in World War 2 NEW -- digitally restored Developed by the Luftwaffe, High Frequency Warfare ("Hochfrequenz Kriegsführung") shows how high frequency signals were used in radio direction finding, signals jamming and radar detection. This is in German, so I added some explanatory text, but I found it pretty easy to follow. An attacking British bomber force is identified, their navigation signals are jammed, and fighters are vectored to intercept. Radar is employed to protect convoys in the Mediterranean, and radar jamming is used to cover the “Channel Dash” of the Battle cruisers Scharnhorst & Gneisenau during their escape from Brest.

* B-25 "Winged Artillery (Digitally Restored Color) Cannon firing B-25s in vivid color! The original film had no sound effects at all, so I took the liberty of adding aircraft engine sounds, explosions, trucks, hammering etc. I also digitally corrected severe color shifts. Nine 75mm cannon firing B-25Gs of the 48th Bomb Squadron, 7AAF, based on Apamama in the Gilbert Islands, conduct a hair raising tree top level strike on the Japanese air base on Mille.

*B-26 "White Tailed Marauders" Exclusive original documentary Rare color film of B-26 Marauders in action in the Spring of 1945. See the 453rd, 454th, 455th, and 455th Bomb Squadrons operating against Germany from their base in Laon, France. All color footage really brings this bygone era startlingly back to life. Where possible, individual aircraft and their crews are identified. Special treats include escorting P-38s and a round trip mission. A must for Marauder fans everywhere

* USAF 20th Helicopter Squadron CH-3 "Jolly Green Giants in Vietnam NEW!(Original Documentary)Great quality color footage shows 20th Squadron "Jolly Green Giant" CH-3C helos operating out of Danang supporting the amphibious landing in a variety of roles including ferrying 105mm howitzers from "Red Beach" inland to forward fire bases, transporting causalities and captured VC, bringing in spare parts and ferrying civilians from the combat zone to safe havens.

* Fighting 51st F-86s in Korea This revealing documentary was produced by the US Air Force during the Korean War. You'll see members of all sections of the 'Fighting 51st" Fighter Group and their F-86 Sabres in action. The film covers a typical mission, from planning through touchdown. One of the highlights of the film is an address by Francis "Gabby" Gabreski, legendary 56th Fighter Group ace in World War 2 and CO of the 51st in Korea.

* Appointment in Tokyo: MacArthur returns to the Philippines NEW! "Appointment in Tokyo" spans the time from the fall of the Philippine & the island fortress of Corregidor in May 1942 to General MacArthur's return to the islands in October 1944, with a primary focus on the battles to retake the Philippines. Copious combat footage of air, land and sea operations are supplemented by detailed maps that put it all in context

We also show 1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy films and pilot's manuals on how to fly the F4U, F6F, P-38, P-39, P-40, P-47, P-51, P-61, TBF/TBM, AT-6/SNJ, B-17, B-24, B-25, A-20, A-26, B-26, B-29, and Stearman N2S. Alert! - don't miss the F-86, B-47 & B-58!

Although seldom dealt with in general histories of World War II, aerial mines were often used with deadly effect by both Axis and Allied air forces.

* Back Door Gang P-38s in Color. An original documentary from Zeno's Warbird Videos. Rare color film of the 430th FS, 474th FG, 9th Air Force. From the get go, the 474th was configured as a ground attack unit, but they also provided bomber escort and level bombing, led by Norden bomb sight equipped "Droop Snoots," which are shown here. One of three P-38 squadrons in the 474th, the 430th's call sign was "Back Door," and its planes and pilots are featured in the film in the Spring of 1945 at their base in Florennes, Belgium, a former Luftwaffe night fighter base, Meet the pilots & see them in action..

* Go for Broke! (Digitally Restored) NEW! An Academy Award nominated feature film, Go for Broke! stars Van Johnson along with actual veterans of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. The film tells the true story of the 442nd RCT, composed of Nisei soldiers, second-generation Americans born to Japanese-American parents, from training through combat in Europe. Action packed!

*8th Air Force Fighter Pilots & their P-51s in Action. The inspiration for this original Zeno's Waterbirds documentary is a silent 8th Air Force information film showing 8th AF P-51 gun camera film shot in the snow covered Winter of 1944-1945, with brief unit IDs for each pilot. We've restored the video, added sound effects from real P-51s and included photos of most of the featured pilots with additional info and pictures of their Mustangs.

*A Day with the A-36s in Color. (Restored with exclusive additional footage.)The A-36 was the ground attack variant of the P-51 and was known as "the Invader," "the Mustang" or "the Apache." This is very rare combat footage of an A-36A fighter-bomber squadron in action in Sicily. I compiled and edited this unique extended restored color version of the film using multiple sources. The A36A was equipped with the Mustang's original Allison engine, as opposed to the Rolls Royce Merlin adapted so successfully in the high altitude escort versions, which worked just fine for low level work. Note the quad 20mm canons on this fast and powerful attack plane, very unusual on an American fighter.

* World War 2 Japanese Small Arms. NEW! This fascinating film, produced during World War 2 by the US Army Signal Corps, examines small arms used by Japanese forces commonly encountered by Allied forces in the Pacific Theater: the Arisaka Model 38 .25 cal & Model 99 .303 rifles, the Swiss designed Solothurn Type 100 sub-machine gun, the Type 89 grenade launcher, and the Nambu Model 1922 6.5mm Light & Model 92 7.7mm Heavy machine-guns.

* B-58 Hustler Low Altitude Bombing Capability. The B-58's ability to hug the ground at very high speed without the benefit of fly by wire computer control was amazing! I digitally restored this video. This is a simulated low level, long range attack launched from Carswell AFB in Texas against Edwards AFB in California. Much of the mission is flown at 700 mph and above at ground hugging altitude below 500 feet.

We also show 1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy films and pilot's manuals on how to fly the F4U, F6F, P-38, P-39, P-40, P-47, P-51, P-61, TBF/TBM, AT-6/SNJ, B-17, B-24, B-25, A-20, A-26, B-26, B-29, and Stearman N2S. Alert! - don't miss the F-86, B-47 & B-58!
