Hello World War 2 & jet aircraft fans --

You are invited to drop by Zeno's Warbird Video Drive-In http://www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com
to view our October selection of eight exciting aviation films streaming over the Web in broadband, including four premiers!

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

Now showing in August "At the Matinee" at Zeno's Drive-In Free admission! http://zenoswarbirdvideos.com/MATINEE.html

*Army Air Forces Pacific. NEW! AAF C-in-C General Hap Arnold introduces this sweeping summary of Army Air Force operations in the Pacific Theater from the attack on Pearl Harbor through the dropping of the atomic bomb. From the Aleutians to the jungles of Burma to hard fought Pacific atolls, you'll see a wide variety of aircraft in action, including P-47 Thunderbolts, B-17s, B-24s and majestic B-29s. See how “the greatest generation” made it all work.

*Deploying Mines at Sea for World War 2 Aircraft. NEW! This unique film by the US Navy describes World War II aerial mine warfare at sea. You'll learn the basics of mine laying, including strategy and tactics. You'll also find out how mines were fused and armed to be ready for deployment, along with detailed diagrams of their inner workings. You'll see rare footage of actual aerial mine laying missions by PBJs in the Pacific. 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!

zenoswarbirdvideos.com/MATINEE.html

* The Rear Gunner. NEW! I edited together & digitally corrected video & audio from two different surviving copies of this classic film to get the best possible composite version. You won't see this restored video anywhere else! Starring Lt Ronald Reagan & Lt. Burgess Meredith, the story follows "Peewee" Williams through gunnery school and into battle in this vintage WWII information film produced for the US Army Air Force.

*Flexible Aerial Gunnery. Making A World War 2 Gunner. Developed to be shown to trainees at the beginning of their course, it’s a thorough step-by-step preview of what to expect. Some of the many things you'll see: the role of the instructor, .30 &.50 caliber machine guns, dealing with jams, compensating for bullet drop, estimating range and leading targets, bore sighting and harmonization & a lot more.

* USAAF: The Air War in Europe-1943. This is a series of dramatic films showing the rapidly maturing Army Air Force moving into high gear in the Fall of 1943. You'll see the B-17 "Berlin Sleeper" on one of her record breaking 102 missions. B-25 Mitchells battle North African mud to move out to their new base in occupied Italy. "Thunderbolts Over Europe" shows P-47s taking on the Luftwaffe on a dramatic bomber escort mission. Thirty-three Martin B-26 Marauder bombers, protected by RAF Spitfires, hit ship yards, power plants and workshops near Le Trait, France. You'll see the original newsreel footage of "The Memphis Belle's" last mission against the U Boat pens at Wilhelmshaven

* The Battle for Paris: The French Resistance Fights the German Occupation – 1944. NEW! As the Allies closed the ring on Paris in the Summer of 1944, most of German occupation forces left the city to meet them. The French Resistance leaped into action to take the city, using a combination of smuggled weapons, hunting rifles and captured enemy equipment. What follows is a dramatic "you are there" front row seat on resistance fighters battling German troops (including a Panther Tank) on the boulevards of the capital, all filmed as it happened by citizen cameraman. Action packed!

*News from the Front in North Africa. Restored Color. Shot In Technicolor by US Army, Navy and O.S.S. cameraman in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, November-December 1942. Hands down some of the best color footage we have seen from World War 2. This was tough "on the job training" for the brand new American Army and Air Corps. And there are some of the first, and possibly only, color shots of German Tiger 1 tanks in combat, taking and returning fire.

*Mission to Rabaul. This dramatic, high impact documentary film shows some of the most memorable, exciting, and extensive footage of 5th Air Force B-25G bombers conducting tree top level attacks with machine guns and delayed action bombs to come out of World War 2 .The first step in the reduction of Rabaul was the seizure of a string of Japanese bases along the Northeast coast of New Guinea. The film focuses on the decisive and revolutionary impact of the air component in the strategy, including high & low level attacks, parachute drops, and resupply.

* Recognition of the Focke Wulf FW190 Fighter. The FW 190 was many Luftwaffe ace's favorite fighter: fast, heavily armed and maneuverable, with an outstanding roll rate. One of the highlights of this film is a mock dog fight between a captured 190 in RAF roundels and a P-47 Thunderbolt. This "recognition" film was produced for the RAF, but was probably also used by the US Army Air force to train their pilots as well. Very good FW footage here.

* There is a Way: The 421st Tactical Fighter Squadron 'Fighting Cavaliers' and their F-105 Thunderchiefs in Vietnam This is the best documentary showing an Air Force unit from the Vietnam War. I digitally restored the color. It's a lot more than your average USAF "information" film. Shot in November, 1966, this up close and personal look at the 421st Sq, 388th TFW has everything from exciting footage of a bombing raid on Hanoi, dodging SAMs and fighting Migs, to feverish overnight activity to repair and rearm the big "Thuds at their base at Korat, Thailand

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!

* P-47 Thunderbolt World Wide Combat Operation NEW! This film was shown to fledgling "Jug" pilots before they shipped out to forward air bases around the world. This engrossing video features a half dozen real pilots flying real missions in a variety of roles in all theaters of war.

*XB-70A Valkyrie Supersonic Bomber Flight Test Program Overview. Restored Color NEW! This film, produced by North American Aviation, gives a concise overview of the early phases of the supersonic XB-70A bomber aircraft design, construction, development and testing in 1964.

"Killer " Kane and the men of the 98th Bomb Group in the Summer of 1943, shortly before the heroic, costly Ploesti mission, at their desert base in Benghasi/Benina, Libya. You'll see legendary B-24 Liberators like "The Vulgar Virgin," "The Sandman," and "War Cloud."

Narrated by NBC News legend Chet Huntley, this wide ranging color documentary gives a overview of USN activities during the Vietnam War, including carrier based air strikes, river patrols, Marine amphibious landings, base construction by Sea Bees, reconnaissance, direct gunfire support from warships and more. Great color footage of air, sea & land operations.

* We Flew the Mig 15. In September, 1953, a North Korean defector handed over the first Russian Mig 15 to fall into US hands. This was a momentous occasion because the Mig had proven to be a worthy adversary for the North American F-86 Sabre in the skies over Korea. The Mig was immediately subjected to comprehensive testing. You'll see Chuck Yeagar and other top test pilots putting the Mig through it's paces and hear what they learned, along with a point by point performance comparison with the F-86.

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!

* 354th Fighter Group P-51 Mustang Pioneers in Color. New edition with sound effects & new material! This is an updated revision of a documentary I created 6 years ago with added sound effects plus exclusive new footage of Lt. B W Carr climbing out of the captured German FW 190 fighter that he stole after being shot down & flew back to his own airfield! Rare color film of the legendary 354 Fighter Group in action, with over 700 Kills, the highest scoring American unit in Europe. 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!

* P-47 Thunderbolt Aerobatics & High Altitude Flight NEW! See the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt Rock & Roll! Loops, rolls, dives, the big "Jug" can do it all. Contains a thorough explanation of high altitude P-47 turbo-supercharger theory & operation too!

* More World War 2 German Newsreels. NEW! Highlights include: JU-87 Stukas attack Warsaw, 3rd Panzer Army's Winter defense of Vitebsk, King Tiger II Tanks, FW 190 dive bombers operate on the Eastern Front, Marder one man torpedo craft, 15th Panzer Grenadier (including Mark V Panther tanks) counter attacks the Americans at Luneville, Panzerkamphwagen VI and much more.

* Wings Up! USAF World War 2 Officer Candidate School. NEW! Narrated by Academy Award Winner Capt Clark Gable. This film was developed by the Army Air Corps to show men what to expect when they entered Officer's Candidate School in Miami Florida. There was a lot more to becoming an officer than learning how to fly.

* Bird Dog FAC for F-100s Supports US Army in Vietnam. (Color) This short film 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 spotting for 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.

* US Navy Aircraft Aerial Torpedo Attack - High Speed High Altitude. Originally developed to educate pilots about new torpedoes that could be dropped from higher (and therefore less vulnerable) altitudes and speeds, the film also gives a through grounding in torpedo attacks in general. You'll learn about depth setting, range estimation, target angles, leading the target, the effect of crosswinds, working with fighters and dive bombers during an attack, using radar, countering evasive ship maneuvers and much more.

* Operating Light & Medium Tanks in World War 2. Not only does this film cover the basics of operating World War 2 era American tanks, it offers a rare look at two seldom seen early examples, the M-3 Medium "Lee," (British "Grant") and the M-3 Light "Stuart." A Lee was featured in the 1943 Hollywood classic motion picture "Sahara," starring Humphrey Bogart. The Stuart appeared in many episodes of DC Comic's "Jeb Stuart and the Haunted Tank," often in the unlikely role of taking on German Tigers,

The Fighting Lady. (Color) A new color corrected color print from the National Archives really brings this film to life! "The Fighting Lady" follows the fictional career of an Essex Class aircraft carrier from the Marcus Islands campaign, through Tinian, Truk, the "Mariana's Turkey Shoot" and much more. But don't let the term "fictionalized" miss lead you. All of the footage shown in this fascinating composite documentary is real -- shot by combat cameramen on board ship and in the air, showing actual Navy and Marine pilots and crewmen up close and personal. ("The Fighting Lady was actually the nickname given to the Yorktowns, CV-5 & CV-10.)

We also show 1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy training 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!

* 362nd Fighter Group P-47s Over Germany New edition with sound effects! Exclusive Production This is an updated edition of the documentary that I produced on the 362nd Fighter Group 8 years ago. I've added sound effects from real P-47s & .50 cal machine guns, tightened up the edit & added new info. IMHO, it’s some of the most exciting P-47 Thunderbolt action to come out of World War 2! 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. 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.

* The A-6E Intruder - Any Weather, Any Time - Restored Color NEW! This video not only has great A-6 Intruder footage, there's also on the spot interviews with pilots & Air Wing Commanders discussing the aircraft's outstanding capabilities The A-6E was the definitive all weather version of the Navy's A-6 Intruder attack bomber with upgraded navigation and attack systems

* The Story of the Northrop YB-49 Flying Wing 1949 Restored Color NEW! The Flying Wing was the brainchild of Jack Northrop, who started work on the concept in the 1930s. It may be hard to believe today, but the original Flying Wing's innovative design was often used against it by detractors from competing aircraft companies ("An airplane that doesn't have a tail??!!") So, Northrop Aircraft produced this information film to extol the Wing's virtues and answer her critics.

* DZ Normandy The D-Day Airborne Invasion, June 6th, 1944 D-Day 70th Anniversary "DZ Normandy: The Employment of Troop Carrier Forces" was produced during World War 2 to show the strategic and tactical planning that went into the airborne component of the June 6th, 1944 D-Day invasion as well as document the actual proceedings. Great D-Day footage seen nowhere else.

* The True Glory From D-Day to the Elbe D-Day 70th Anniversary The True Glory" tells the breathtaking story of the Allied sweep across Northern Europe, seen through the lenses of hundreds of Combat Cameramen, It takes you through the major episodes of the northern European Campaign, starting with Invasion preparations, the D-Day Landings, the capture of Cherbourg, Caen, Falaise, the liberation of France, Market Garden, Antwerp & Brussels, the Battle of the Bulge, crossing of the Rhine and the final campaign into Germany to defeat the ****.

* Action at Angaur 81st Infantry Division's Baptism of Fire NEW! I digitally restored this video. Some of the original footage was over or underexposed in the heat of battle. 70 years later using modern technology I was able to correct some of that. Brave Combat Cameraman gave their lives shooting this film. "Action at Angaur" follows the men of the rookie 81st Infantry Division from R&R on Waikiki to a training landing on Guadalcanal to ferocious fighting on the beaches & in the jungles of the island of Angaur.

* Avoiding & Controlling Spins and Stalls in World War 2 Aircraft Many deaths in World War 2 planes 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. Features examples using an F6F Hellcat, F4U Corsair, PBY Catalina & more!

* John Ford's Battle of Midway - Restored Color - Midway 72nd Anniversary. The Battle of Midway" is an Academy Award Winning documentary, directed by four time Oscar Winner John Ford (The Quiet Man, The Grapes of Wrath, Stage Coach, The Informer). This stirring documentary was shot by director John Ford during the intense June 4th Japanese carrier plane attacks on Midway Island and by Navy Combat Cameramen aboard the USS Yorktown during the epic carrier battle, along with color gun camera film of air to air and air to sea combat.

We also show 1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy training 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 Big Lift The Western Allies face-off against the Russians in Berlin NEW! In June 1948 in one of the first confrontations in the Cold War, the Soviets cut land supply lines to the Allied sectors of West Berlin, which was deep in the Russian controlled Eastern Zone in occupied Germany. The Soviets tried to starve the Allies out of the city. In response the Western Powers organized the massive 24/7 Berlin airlift to carry supplies. This gripping feature length drama starring Montgomery Clift, with a supporting cast of real US servicemen, was shot on location in occupied Germany. It pulls no punches in depicting the challenges, to the point of physical violence, when Americans and Germans, recent enemies, were thrown together by the new reality of post war Europe.

* P-61 Black Widow Night Fighters in color. Very rare color P-61 night fighter footage. This is an original documentary I put together from unedited, silent archival film. See the 422nd NFS operating out of Florennes, Belgium. Then you'll move on to the Pacific and the island of Saipan, where you'll see legendary 548th NFS P-61 "Bat Outta Hells." One the highlights of this program is P-61 gun camera film showing a night attack with bombs, rockets and 20mm cannon.

* Target for Tonight This classic film follows RAF crew "F for Freddie," a Vicker's Wellington medium bomber (Millerton Station, Group 33), through an entire low level night attack on an oil storage depot at a rail yard, from planning through return to base,.

* House Search for World War 2 Spies NEW! From the C.I.A. Archives, a "hands on" agent training film produced by the O.S.S. (Office of Strategic Services) during World War 2 on the art of hiding (and finding) objects & secret information hidden in locations like homes, apartments and hotel rooms.

“No Sweat” Flight safety training featuring the F-86D Sabre. Told in a realistic "Film Noire" style, this film was produced by USAFE (United States Air Force, Europe) and filmed on location in Germany in the 1950s in order to cut down on costly air accidents resulting from pilot error. Seemingly trivial mistakes sometimes led to SNAFUs -- or worse. You'll follow a pilot flying an F-86D through what should have been a routine hop, but turns into anything but!

* Medium Bombardment & Attack featuring the B-25.This unique film was made to train B-25 & A-20 medium bomber squadrons transitioning from Europe to the Pacific, with a focus on the North American B-25. These groups were primarily tasked with ground and anti-ship attacks, inflicting huge losses on Japanese forces. Different tactics are shown as well as steps taken to modify B-25s for ground attack. Great footage of extremely low level actions!

* Design for War: U-Boat Attack (Victory at Sea). NEW! From 1939 to 1941 the German Navy accelerated U-Boat production and unleashed their subs in the Atlantic, while the Allies scrambled to defend vulnerable convoys. Captured German film shows U-Boat C--in-C Admiral Karl Donitz and leading U-Boat aces like top scorer Günther Prien (200,000 tons sunk) in action. This period of great success was known as Die Glückliche Zeit (The Happy Time) by U-Boat crews.
* Killers and the Killed: The Allies turn the tables on the U-Boats. (Victory at Sea) NEW! From 1942 to1945 the Western Allies built a string of air bases around and across the Atlantic to extend air cover over convoys for their entire voyage and launched numerous anti-sub aircraft carriers. German U-Boats were no longer safe in the Atlantic and losses mounted rapidly. Rare film of anti-submarine aircraft variants like the Lockheed Ventura, maritime versions of the B-24 Liberator and the Martin PBM Mariner.

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!
