* R.A.F. Airfront. 1944. NEW! Restored "Airfront" was the operational mission film series that supplemented the “The Gen" R.A.F News Magazine" shown to R.A.F. service personnel. While "The Gen" had a breezy, "Life Magazine" style showing R.A.F. operations around the World, "Airfront" focused on individual missions and units, offering dramatic continuous action, from strategic bombing to on-the-deck ground attacks. This clip contains episodes from missions over Northern Europe from pre-invasion Spring 1944 into August 1944. All types of Aircraft were featured, including Lancasters, Typhoons, Bostons, Mitchells, Mosquitoes & more.

* Destroyers: Greyhounds of the Sea. Narrated by the legendary actor & ex Marine Corps DI, Jack Webb, this fascinating documentary covers the history of “Tin Cans” from the US Navy's first “Torpedo Boat Destroyer,” the U.S.S Bainbridge (DD-1) in 1903, through World War 1 & World War 2, to modern guided missile and ASW Destroyers operating in Hunter/Killer groups in concert with Aircraft Carriers.

* The Capture of U 505. This film takes a memorable look at World War II advanced anti-submarine operations. In June, 1944, Task Force "Guadalcanal," commanded by Captain Daniel V. Gallery, composed of the escort aircraft carrier USS Guadalcanal (CVE-60), and five destroyer escorts under the Commander Frederick S. Hall were on station off the Cape Verde Islands, where code intercepts placed German U-Boats. From the outset of the mission

* Air Photographic Intelligence for Bombardment Aviation. Top secret & never shown to the public, this picture is an amazing time capsule from World War 2. Starring screen legend Alan Ladd (Shane, This Gun for Hire) it's like a real life detective story, seen only by Air Intelligence trainees. Smitty an American Captain in photo analysis stationed in a misty Scottish castle, becomes obsessed with a photo recon picture taken over Hamburg, Germany, that has anomalies he just can't explain. The story of how he solves this riddle using persistence, insight and World War 2 High Tech (including Stereo Vision€ is a fascinating tale

* Photo Mapping Recon Mission to Myitkyna, Burma. (1944-Restored) NEW This 'behind the scenes' photo reconnaissance mission was filmed by the 10th Army Air Force Combat Camera unit in April, 1944. It's one of those gems that shows an essential operation that was rarely seen by the general public, and takes place in the C.B.I theater of operations, which IMO has received little of the attention it deserves in the intervening years. The target is the town of Myitkyna in North East Burma, a vital rail, air field, supply & operations center for Japanese forces in the area and a prime objective for General “Vinegar Joe” Stilwell's next offensive.

* Merrill's Marauders & the 88th Fighter Squadron in Burma. (Restored) This dramatic 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. Highlights include distinctive skull marked P-40Fs, with pilots & support crews, unique from the cockpit views of P-40 dive bombing runs and 88th FS armorers custom fitting 250 pound Navy HE depth charges with fins & detonators for use against jungle fortifications

* Why We're Here Fighting in Burma & India. 1945 This film report was delivered by General Daniel Sultan, who succeeded General Stilwell as Allied commander of Burma/India operations. When surveyed, 50% of US forces had responded that they didn't know why they were in seemingly obscure South East Asia, "fighting to save the Chinese and the British Empire," instead of in Europe or the highly publicized island campaigns in the South Pacific. In response, the General shows the vital strategic importance of keeping China in the war and the essential role (and sacrifices) of British and Chinese forces, all done through engaging film clips and maps.

* 365th Fighter Group Hell Hawks. (Exclusive Production Restored Color) I put this to documentary together from silent unedited archival film. Really exciting P-47 Thunderbolt action from the skies over Germany, Spring, 1945..Col. Ray J Stecker leads the men of the 386th, 387th, and 388th Fighter Squadrons into action. Watch extensive color footage of the 365th Thunderbolts in their forward bases in France and Belgium and exciting air-to- air and air-to-ground attacks, including rare gun camera film of the shoot down of a Messerschmidt Me 262 jet fighter!

* Wright Field: Test Center for the Army Air Force. 1943 NEW Wright Field was the hub of US Army Air Force testing & development of new weapons & aircraft during World War 2. Virtually all aircraft produced by the Allies were flown in for evaluation, including (as you'll see) Spits, Hurricanes, P-38s, P-39s, P-40s, A-20s, B-17s, the Mammoth B-19, B-24s & B-25s.& more. Virtually every system in aircrafts were tested, including brakes, hydraulics,landing gear machine guns, & gun sights.

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!

Zeno's Warbird Video Drive-In Action Packed April 2016 Newsletter

Hello World War 2 film & jet aircraft fans --

You are invited to drop by Zeno’s Warbird Video Drive-In www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com/ to view our April 2016 selection of eight exciting films streaming over the Web in broadband, including four premieres!

As always, all of the videos showing on our web site are for your free viewing pleasure. Please help "spread the word" by liking us on Facebook!

Now showing “At the Matinee” in April
zenoswarbirdvideos.com/MATINEE.html Free admission!

Target for Today NEW! Digitally Restored Release Target for Today is the classic World War II feature length documentary detailing a "maximum effort" daylight bombing mission deep into Germany. There are no actors in "Target For Today." This film was shot on location under combat conditions and features the officers and men of the 8th Air Force going about their deadly business. All aspects of an actual major raid in 1943, from early planning through final touch down and crew debriefings, are covered in this very thorough account. Anklam. Danzig and the FW-190 plant at Marienburg are the targets hit.

Private Snafu: Spies! New Restored Color. If bumbling Private SNAFU sounds like Bugs Bunny in this entertaining short, it's because it's the legendary voice of Mel Blanc, who did Bugs and many other cartoon characters. The inept Private SNAFU appeared in a series of cartoons showing G.I.s what NOT to do in a variety of situations – in this case, keeping military secrets. There's a lot of good advice packed in a fun filled few minutes that must have held the audiences' attention.

Man and the FBM: The US Navy's First Polaris Missile Submarines NEW Restored Color. This fascinating film shows the story in graphic detail of the development, construction, testing and deployment of both the revolutionary new subs and their missiles. New technologies like nuclear propulsion, rockets, subsurface firing, inertial guidance systems, advanced fire control and communications & computer systems had to be taught to a new generation of submariners in a remarkably short time (

8th Air Force Fighter Pilots & their P-51s in Action EXCLUSIVE The primary source for this original 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. You'll see film from legendary aces like "Kit" Carson & his P-51 "Nooky Booky IV" & more

Mission to Rabaul This action packed film covers a key battle of the oft overlooked 1943 New Guinea campaign in the South Pacific. General Douglas MacArthur and his staff put together a brilliant combined arms strategy that utilized Air Power as a key element to leap frog over rugged jungle terrain and isolate and destroy Japanese strongholds. While tough Australian jungle fighters spearheaded the frontal ground assault, American paratroopers accompanied by Aussie light artillery volunteers, dropped on, seized & secured a Japanese air base behind enemy lines so that an Australian division could be ferried in on C-47s and attack the enemy from the rear. There's a good reason this is one of out popular films - it's a great documentary!

The United States Air Force in Vietnam - Restored Color This wide ranging USAF video covers the rapid expansion of the US Air Force's roll in the Vietnam War in the mid 1960s. Bases are set up at Cam Ran Bay, Phan Rang, Bien Hoa and other sites. A wide range of aircraft are shown in action including F-100 Super Sabres, F4 Phantoms, F-104 Star Fighters, F-102 Delta Daggers, F-105 Thunder Chiefs, A-1 Skyraiders, B-52 and B-57 bombers and more. There's exciting combat footage throughout the film showing air strikes over both South and North Vietnam. Meet the aircraft and the men who flew and maintained them.

Korea: Operation Inchon New Digitally Restored The fascinating story of General Douglas MacArthur's amphibious landing at the port of Inchon behind North Korean lines. This brilliant move led to the liberation of the South Korean capital, Seoul, and a dramatic reversal in the course of the war. Previously victorious North Korean forces were out flanked and forced into a pell-mell retreat back north of the 38th Parallel, almost to the Siberian border.

P-38 Reconnaissance Pilot starring William Holden Photo recon pilots (Photo Joes) had one of the riskiest, highest impact jobs in the war. Flying camera equipped, unarmed, and often unescorted aircraft -- in this case the Lockheed F-5, a "stripped down" P-38 -- pilots flew deep into enemy territory. "Reconnaissance Pilot" follows Packy Cummings. from basic training to the skies over New Guinea. Starring William Holden ("Bridge on the River Kwai") as Lt. "Packy" Cummings,

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!

World War 2 U.S. Navy Aviation Machinist Mate NEW! Restored Color You'll see Prop Mechanics, Carburetor Mechanics, Instrument Specialists and Flight Engineers at work, repairing & servicing a wide variety of aircraft including like the SBD Dauntless dive bomber, Vought OS2U Kingfisher catapult scout plane, four-engined Consolidated PB2Ys & more!

Tracking the Threat ASW in the Cold War. New Restored Color. This is an amazing time capsule that could have come right out of the pages of Tom Clancey's classic thriller, “The Hunt for the Red October.” In this memorable recreation, a US Navy Carrier Task Force detects and tracks a Soviet sub in the North Atlantic. You'll see all aspects of the operation from the high tech Tactical Command Centers aboard the Carrier USS America and Destroyer USS Spruance (DDG-111), to P3 Orion turbo props out of Keflavik Iceland and carrier launched S3 Vikings dropping and monitoring sonobuoy fields, to Destroyers deploying towed arrays .

The Thunderbolts: Ramrod to Emden. Restored. The 56th Fighter Group (made up of the 61, 62 & 63 squadrons) was one of the most storied Air Corps units of World War II. Home to aces like David Schilling (22 kills), Frances "Gabby" Gabreski (28), Robert S. Johnson (27), Fred Christensen (21.5), Walker Mahurin (21), and CO Hubert "Hub" Zemke (18), the 56th blazed an early trail across the skies of the ETO in their massive, but deadly P-47 Thunderbolts "Ramrod to Emden" is the story of the Dec 11, 1943 bomber escort mission (aka "a ramrod") to Emden, Germany.

The Story of the Black Cat PBYs EXCLUSIVE EDITION! Originally designed primarily as a reconnaissance and antisubmarine amphibious patrol plane, the big twin engined PBY 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, made it an ideal naval night attack bomber. One of the least known stories of the war in the Pacific, these black painted PBY "VPB" ('Patrol Bombing") squadrons spread destruction and chaos far out of proportion to their relatively small numbers.

Air Operations in Lae-Salamaua on New Guinea This action packed film covers a key battle of the oft overlooked 1943 New Guinea campaign in the South Pacific. General Douglas MacArthur and his staff put together a brilliant combined arms strategy that utilized Air Power as a key element to leap frog over rugged jungle terrain and isolate and destroy Japanese strongholds. While tough Australian jungle fighters spearheaded the frontal ground assault, American paratroopers accompanied by Aussie light artillery volunteers, dropped on, seized & secured a Japanese air base behind enemy lines so that an Australian division could be ferried in on C-47s and attack the enemy from the rear.

The General Douglas MacArthur Story The life story of one of the most remarkable Generals in American history, from the trenches of World War 1, to the deep bunkers of Corregidor, to returning to the Philippines at Leyte Gulf, to the hills of Korea & much more.

Airplane 11: The First B-58 Hustler Trainer The first training version of the B-58 Hustler supersonic bomber, the TB-58, was delivered by General Dynamics to the US Air Force in August, 1960, the first of eight R&D aircraft (this was "aircraft 11" in the test series) converted for that purpose. The biggest change involved converting the Bomber/Navigator station (2nd seat aft) to a pilot/instructors compartment with instrumentation and controls. Highlights include great footage of the colorfully painted TB 58 training version in operation, a tour of the mockup of the converted crew section, and unique in flight footage shot from inside the aircraft.


Axis War News Captured Newsreels: He 111s, Stalingrad, the Tirpitz & more Some highlights: German air & naval forces (Tirpitz!) attack Allied convoys to Murmansk. Italian Sub Barbarigo operating in the South Atlantic. German & Italian forces attack an allied convoy in the Med. The fight for the Red October Factory in Stalingrad. The battle before Leningrad. Rommel's Afrika Korps is resupplied. German defensive lines and fortifications in Italy. HE 111 bomber attacks on the Eastern Front. Axis forces defend the "Kuban Bridgehead" against Soviet attacks. Elite German assault boat troops fight in the Kuban River marshes. The German commerce raider "Thor's" epic voyage to Japan.

World War 2 U.S. Navy Aviation Metal Smiths NEW! Making aircraft parts from scratch. Spare parts for Naval aircraft weren't always readily available at sea or in the field. Your see Navy metal smiths produce a replacement engine cowling from scratch in the field, including producing a mold and casting, for a PBY Catalina and repairing a PB4Y (the Navy's B-24) with a new nose turret and more.

Uncrating and Field Assembly of the P-47 Thunderbolt This truly remarkable step-by-step training film shows how a ground support crew of fifty men could assemble a P-47 in a field using nothing more than muscle, unpowered hand tools, and pieces of the shipping crate it came in. We're talking nothing more than hammers, wrenches and bicycle pumps!

Battle Ship NEW! Iowa Class Battle Wagons return to action This film was produced as part of the ceremony commemorating the recommissioning of the Battle Ship Missouri in 1986. You'll see a history of the Iowa class Battleships (USS Iowa BB-61, USS New Jersey BB-62, USS Missouri BB-63 and USS Wisconsin BB-64), from launching during World War 2 through Korea & Vietnam to extensive refitting with modern electronics & Tomahawk cruise missiles before the 1st Gulf War

The 362nd Fighter Group On the prowl over Germany Exclusive! Select 362nd Fighter Group P-47 Thunderbolt fighter/bombers were specially equipped with extra color movie cameras to capture thrilling ground and air attacks as they happened. These squadrons were tasked with striking targets inside Germany as the war against the Third Reich entered it's final act in Spring, 1945. The result is unique "from the cockpit" views putting you in the middle of attacks on tanks, airfields, trucks, rail yards, bridges, trains, fighters, and more.

Ditch at Sea and Live in a Boeing B-17 Ditching in water was a fact of life for stricken aircraft in World War 2, from the frozen white tops of the North Sea to the Shark infested waters of the South Pacific. Lt. Reynolds, played by veteran actor Arthur Kennedy (Lawrence of Arabia), is copilot on a B-17 that ditches at sea. He's survives by pure luck, but the rest of the crew is lost due to a lack of preparation. When he gets his own ship, Reynolds vows his crew is thoroughly trained in B-17 ditching. He gives them the straight dope, step by step.

Sucker Bait NEW! German Spies in the USA! “Loose lips sink ships,” was a warning seen everywhere during World War 2 in America. In this highly dramatic training film, starring Richard Carlson with Donna Reed, Barry Nelson and Esther Williams, unfortunately that becomes all too true. A riveting 1940s "Film Noir" style drama.

Avoiding & Controlling Spins and Stalls in World War 2 Aircraft Many deaths in World War 2 aircraft were actually caused by pilot error, rather than enemy fire. The problem was so serious that the US Navy produced this film to directly address the problem. Learn why aircraft spins and stalls happen and how to deal with them in this thorough Wold War 2 US Navy training film. Features examples using an F6F Hellcat, F4U Corsair, PBY Catalina & more!

Bird Dog FAC for F-100s Supports US Army in Vietnam This short film is a real gem. You'll see an Air Force Forward Air Controller (FAC) assigned to the 1st Division, flying a tiny Cessna O-1E Bird Dog and operating in conjunction with three F-100 fighter bombers out of Phan Rang and local Army Artillery. Their mission is in support 3rd Brigade operations against VC bases near Lai Khe, 50 miles from Saigon. Specifically, to prep an LZ so chopper borne troops could land and conduct offensive operations.

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!

* Floating Fortress:" The Battleship Wisconsin in Action NEW! This is a unique look inside an Iowa class battleship, the U.S.S. Wisconsin, during the Korean Conflict. Essentially unchanged from World War 2, the Wisconsin provided fire support for amphibious landings and inland battles, hurling 16 inch shells 20 miles. The Wisconsin was a floating city at work. You'll see all aspects of daily operations including inside the gun turret in action, on the bridge, the fire control center, messes, bakeries, butcher shops, the PX, print shop, the engine room and much more.

*World War 2 US Navy Radiomen NEW - Restored Color! See Navy Aviation Radiomen handle communications & repair aboard a Jeep carrier, on a long range bomber and in action in the back seat of a Dauntless Dive Bomber, where they doubled as an observer, navigator and rear gunner!

*Target Tokyo: The first B-29 Mission NEW! Follow the men of the 21st Bomber Command and their B-29 Super Fortresses from their training base in Grand Island, Nebraska, to the newly built air base at Saipan and right into the first 3,000 mile raid on Tokyo. Great up close and personal footage of the lives of air & ground crews, along with rare B-29 combat film shot on that first big raid on the Nakajima aircraft plant.

*354th Fighter Group Mustang Pioneers. Exclusive production. 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. Nice scenes with the group's well known P-51Ds too, including "Margie Maru" and "Angel's Playmate." This was the first group to fly P-51Bs in the ETO. Amazing color gun camera film!

*Introduction to Dive Bombing You'll learn everything from the basic theory of dive bombing to how to put your egg on a real target, including ships at sea. Navy SBD "Dauntless" dive bombers delivered fatal blows against the Japanese carrier force at the battle of Midway using the same techniques you'll see in this film. A must for history buffs and virtual combat pilot's alike.

*9th AF 262 Fighter Group P-47 Thunderbolts in Action. 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

*Go for Broke- Japanese Americans fight for their country Academy Award Nominee 1951 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. Fighting in Europe in World War II, they were the most highly decorated unit for their size & length of service in the history of the US Army, with one of the highest casualty rates.)
[IMG]http://www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com/Images/ARCTIC160.jpg [/IMG]
*Land & Live in the Arctic for World War 2 Airmen A P-40 pilot has engine trouble & a radio malfunction and makes a crash landing in deep snow & trees. 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’

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!

* Camouflage NEW -Restored Color! This film is a treasure. It's one of the best examples of the theory and practice of the art of camouflaging military targets from air observation & attack that you'll find anywhere, presented in a highly entertaining Disney style full color animation supplemented by live action film.

*A Day with the A-36s in Sicily. The A-36 was the ground attack variant of the P-51 and was known as "the Invader" or "the Mustang." Unique extended color version with newly discovered footage. Very rare combat film of an A-36A fighter-bomber squadron in action in Sicily. The A36A was equipped with the Mustang's original Allison engine, as opposed to the Rolls Royce Merlin adapted so successfully in the 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.
