* Building a Bomber - The Martin B-26 Marauder- 1945 NEW! See production of a World War 2 Martin B-26 medium bomber from metal casting through final assembly. Set at the Martin aircraft plant in Marietta Georgia.

* Tank Destroyer Boot Camp -1943 NEW! Restored Color This unique color documentary gives a rare look inside the Camp Hood, TX, tank destroyer troop training school in 1943. Includes up close looks at M 10 Tank Destroyers and camp facilities. Highlights include target practice using field guns and M10s against moving targets, field maneuvers against tanks, live fire exercises, armored infantry assaults and bazooka training.

* River Patrol: US Navy Mekong River Delta Operations in Vietnam - 1967 - Restored Color NEW! I spent restored the color in this US Navy film and am very pleased with the results. The USS Harnett County (LST-821) served as a floating base in the China Sea for PCF swift boat and helicopter patrol operations in the Mekong River Delta during the Vietnam War. The labyrinthine Delta was a hot zone in the war against well organized Viet Cong insurgents, immortalized by the film "Apocalypse Now." This beautifully photographed film is the real thing -- a "slice of life" documentary showing daily operations aboard the Harnett County and exciting action on swift boat river patrols & Huey helicopter gunship ground support missions. Highly recommended!

* John Fords "Under Cover: How to operate behind enemy lines in World War 2 -1943 NEW! This is the first film ever made on how to be a spy in enemy territory produced by a secret intelligence service to train agents. It's not everyday I discover a virtually unknown feature film by an Oscar Winning director, let alone one that contains his only speaking role in a talking picture. Hollywood legend John Ford directed this training film during World War 2 on the art of espionage for the O.S.S (Office of Strategic Services, forerunner of the C.I.A).

* Back Door Gang P-38si n Color Newly discovered 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.

* Hell in Normandy Restored Color NEW! This 1960's era Italian cinema factory "Spaghetti War Movie" has a preposterous plot full of historical inaccuracies, poorly chosen locations, cheap special effects, ham acting, corny badly dubbed dialogue, a sexy Italian actress and features Hollywood B movie star Guy Madison. In other words, what's not to like?

* German Infantry Small Arms -1944 NEW! Captured German arms were used in this World War 2 era US Army training film to familiarize American troops with the weapons of their enemy.(Who knows, maybe they thought they might have to be used in combat if you ran out of ammo.) The 9mm "Schmeisser" MP-40 machine pistol, the 7.92mm MG-34 machine gun, 7.92mm MG 42 machine gun and the 7.92mm 1898K Mauser rifle are all demonstrated.

* B-29s Over North Korea Exclusive original documentary. I created this videos from a recently found reel of silent, unedited and undocumented footage shot by the US Air Force in Korea in August-September, 1950, for a documentary that was never released. The highlight of the film shows an early morning briefing for 19th Bomb Group (28th, 30th and 98th Bomb Squadrons) at Kadena Air Base on Okinawa. Memorable B-29 nose art in full color!

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 February 2014 Newsletter

Hello World War 2 & jet aircraft fans --

You are invited to drop by Zeno's Warbird Video Drive-In www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com to view our February selection of eight exciting aviation streaming over the Web in broadband. There are three 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 January "At the Matinee" at Zeno's Drive-In Free admission! zenoswarbirdvideos.com/MATINEE.html

* 8th Air Force Fighter Pilots & their P-51s in action - 1945 NEW Exclusive production. The inspiration 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" & many more. Includes exciting air to air & air to ground attack film from the 35th, 55th, 78th, 357th, 364th, 379th & 479th Fighter Groups.

* School for Danger S.O.E and the French Resistance fight the German Occupation -1944 NEW!
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. This remarkable film on British S.O.E.(Special Operations Executive) wartime espionage operations in occupied France was shot on location after the Liberation. The film is a composite recreation of actual operations combined into one story line.

* German World War 2 Newsreels: JG 26, Rommel, Night Fighters, Panzers & more. During World War 2 German combat cameramen were celebrities for a good reason. These clips are from the "Die Deutsche Wochenshau" newsreel series. Of course, some of them have a obvious propaganda slant: Nazi leaders are idolized and retreats are portrayed as victories, but they are also a unique collection of seldom seen World War 2 films, often in very good to excellent condition, as they were shown to the German people and in occupied countries.

* Convair B-58 "Hustler" MITO Tests - 1963 Digitally Restored Color During the depths of the Cold War, SAC bombers had only 15 to 20-minutes to get airborne between the launch of enemy missiles and their arrival at US targets. That meant that the ability get US air forces on their way quickly and efficiently was absolutely essential for survivability, striking power and deterrence. A critical element in this quick response was "MITO" - "Minimum Interval Take-Off." Great B-58 Hustler color footage!

* Expansion to Air Power The Rise of the Army Air Force 1939-43 Between the eve of World War 2 in June 1939 and December 1943, the US Army Air Force grew from 2,402 aircraft and 24,700 personnel to 65,000 aircraft and 2.4 million personnel - an unprecedented leap. FDRs goal of producing 50,000 planes a year was met and surpassed! This engrossing film combines easy to grasp information with memorable graphics and dramatic historic film footage that makes it all real.

* Frank Capra's Battle of China Restored NEW! This is the sixth installment of Academy Award winner Frank Capra's legendary "Why We Fight" World War 2 film series, devoted to the often over looked conflict between China and Japan from the early 1930's through America's entry into World War War 2. The film does not stint on wartime propaganda, but it is also a unique repository of footage from this seldom covered theater, including Chinese forces in action and captured footage of the Imperial Japanese Army and Air Force.

* 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, Gallery made it his objective to capture a U-boat, intact, the first for the US Navy, so that it could be examined in detail by American intelligence.

* Saipan Superforts: B-29s Strike Japan Stereo Sound - Exclusive original documentary. See B-29 pilots & crews on R&R and on mission in their magnificent Superfortresses. The fates of many of the B-29s seen in this picture are documented during the film. Some made the ultimate sacrifice. You'll see a gallery of memorable 73rd Bomb Wing nose art too -- all in living color. "The "maximum effort" take-off scene is an awe inspiring combination of 18 cylinder engine roar and a musical score that's guaranteed to raise goose bumps.

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!

* Flexible Aerial Gunnery: Making a World War 2 Gunner NEW This Army Air Force training film is the best look inside a World War 2 aerial gunnery school we have seen. Developed to be shown to trainees at the beginning of their course, its a thorough step by step preview of what to expect. You'll see: .30 &.50 caliber machine guns, dealing with jams, compensating for bullet drop, estimating range and leading targets, bore sighting and harmonization & a lot more. Live highlights include action on the firing range using transplanted motorized .50 cal gun turrets shooting at moving targets and in the air firing at towed targets

* Stratojet: Meet Your Boeing B-47 NEW! Great color Boeing B-47 footage here! See the design, development and manufacturing of the Boeing B-47 Stratojet, the US Air Force's first operational long range all jet bomber. Then you'll follow a crew from SAC's McConnell Air Force Base (3250th Combat Crew Training Wing) on a training mission that simulates a night attack using a practice target in the US.

* 354th Fighter Group "P-51 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!


* Land & Live in the Jungle for World War 2 Airmen NEW Five crewmen from a stricken B-25 bomber parachute into a dense tropical jungle. The dramatic story of how they make it out is fascinating and informative viewing. Four of the crew land together & get just about everything right. On the other hand, the planes pilot, Captain Harris, played by Academy Award winning actor Van Heflin, is separated from the others, panics and does just about everything wrong -- and pays a heavy price for his ignorance.

* North American B-25s: Winged Artillery 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. Also features amazingly well preserved and very rare color footage of daily life of air crew and ground personnel stationed on the islands.

* Attack! The Battle for New Britain NEW Stage two of the isolation and reduction of the Japanese fortress of Rabaul was the seizure of key bases at the opposite (Western) end of the 370-mile long island of New Britain, cutting enemy supply lines and providing advance airfields for continuing attacks on the stronghold. You'll see all aspects of the invasion, including planning, training, air attacks, amphibious assaults, and the intense jungle fighting to secure objectives. And there's more of those exciting low level B-25 strikes!

* How to Dive Bomb in a World War 2 Aircraft 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.

* Target for Today (Restored) This is THE classic World War II feature length documentary detailing a "maximum effort" American daylight bombing mission deep into Germany. There are no actors or recreations 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.

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 Fighter Combat Formations: Attack & Escort with Ronald Reagan NEW! An experienced Army Air Force fighter pilot, played with his usual verve by Ronald Reagan, is called back from the front to lead a fighter tactics class in Flight School for rookie pilots. The film starts with the AAF way for forming. deploying and maneuvering fighter formations from two ship elements to 12 plane squadrons & how to take on enemy fighters. Then the focus turns to tactics for escorting friendly bombers and attacking enemy bomber formations, including close escort, top cover, using the sun to blind opponents, employing decoys in the attack - and more. Well illustrated.

* The Sinking of the Prince of Wales & Singapore Surrenders Japanese Newsreels 1942 Restored NEW! In Japanese with English explanatory text. First film shows the sinking of the British battleship Prince of Wales and battle cruiser Repulse by Japanese bombers. It's a mixture of real film footage and recreated special effects, typical of World War 2 Japanese documentaries. The second film shows the surrender of Allied forces in Singapore.

* White Tailed Marauders the 323rd Bomb Group and their B-26s Exclusive Original Production - 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.

* Why We're Here Fighting in Burma & India -1945 NEW! Digitally Restored. 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.

* The Fighting Lady A new print from the National Archives, that Icolor corrected color 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. All of the footage shown in this fascinating classic 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.

* A Motion Picture History of the Korean War NEW1 Restored A concise, easy to grasp history of the war told through maps, memorable "you are there" images and eye witness accounts. You'll learn about strategy and tactics while you see the dramatic ebb and flow of the conflict from the North Korean invasion through the final cease fire.

* "There is a Way" F-105s in Vietnam This is 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 and their F-105s 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.

* The True Glory - From D-Day to the Elbe Academy Award Winner 1945 (Restored) the True Glory" tells the breathtaking story of the Allied sweep across Northern Europe, seen through the lenses of hundreds of combat cameramen. An inspirational journey!

* Land & Live in the Arctic NEW! digitally restored edition 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

* A-20 Havoc (Boston) Attack Bombers in Color with 416th BG Scrapbook 1944 This is an original documentary. See rare color footage of 416th Bomb Group A-20 Havoc (aka Bostons) attack bombers taken before the Group transition to A-26s in the fall of 1944 -- plus many memorable still photos from Group photog, Sergeant Cachat. Includes over 200 pictures, including dramatic combat shots, detailed photo analysis of target strikes in France, Belgium, and Germany, and some of the most memorable crew photos we've ever seen. Low level attack missions flown by A-20s over the Continent were some of the most dramatic in World War 2!

* The 365th Fighter Group "Hell Hawks" Exclusive Production, Restored Color 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!

* The United States Air Force in Vietnam - 1967 NEW! Digitally restored color edition 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.

* US Naval Aviation Cadet 1942 - Restored Color I did a shot by shot color restoration of this video. Narrated by Joseph Cotton (Citizen Kane, The Third Man). This color film follows the career of a Navy cadet from enlistment soon after Pearl Harbor through Primary and Advanced Flight Training and on into combat. Especially memorable are the many scenes shot at Pensacola Naval Air Station flight school. You'll see all aspects of cadet training, including flight, gunnery, navigation and bombing, along with a generous serving of cadet social life.

* B-29s Over Dixie Building the Superfortress - 1944 A fascinating look inside the huge B-29 production facility built from scratch in Marrietta, Georgia. Includes detailed views of revolutionary new production techniques, assembly line work, and the training and care of thousands of new workers.

* Operation Titanic Shuttle Bombing Missions to Russia Digitally restored edition/ The problem: key Axis strategic assets were located so deep in Eastern Europe that they either could not be reached by Allied bombers or involved a lengthy round trip that exposed aircraft to heavy German attacks twice. The Russians were closer to these targets, but they were committed to tactical air support and lacked strategic bombers. The solution was "Operation Titanic," aka "Operation Frantic Joe," one of the most audacious and least known strategic operations of the war.

* M1 Rifle Caliber.30: Principles of Operation NEW! Although the M-1 has attained legendary status as the companion of the vast majority of US troops in World War 2, it's truly revolutionary role is still not fully appreciated. Designed by the brilliant John C. Garand, the M1 was the first semi-automatic rifle issued en masse to the army of any nation.

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 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 in operation, a tour of the mock up of the converted crew section, and unique in flight footage shot from inside the aircraft.

* FLAK: Evading Anti-Aircraft Fire for World War 2 Pilots (NEW Digitally Restored) This is a fascinating World War II training film for pilots on the theory and practice of evading antiaircraft fire. The specifications, capabilities, and targeting methods of a variety of German and Japanese AAA pieces are discussed as well as both high and low altitude evasions tactics. Well illustrated with charts, animations and combat film.

* Uncrating and Field Assembly of the P-47 Thunderbolt. A Zeno's Drive-in all time favorite! 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

* The New Guinea Campaign: Air Operations Lae-Salamaua. (NEW Digitally Restored) 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.

* China Crisis: Claire Chennault & the 14th Air Force (NEW Digitally Restored) After Pearl Harbor, the American Volunteer Force (AVG) Flying Tigers and their P-40s were incorporated into the new 14th Air Force, and their CO, Claire Chennault, was put in command. This is story of the 14th in action, including P-40 gun camera footage, the epic airlift over "The Hump, and a rare look at air operations in China.

* Tunisian Victory: The Final Defeat of Rommel's Afrika Korps (NEW Digitally Restored) This is the climactic chapter in the defeat of Rommel's Afrika Korps told in an epic, wide ranging presentation full of memorable scenes. An American-British feature length co-production in very good black and white film, which I digitally restored. Told through a combination of striking footage, high powered narration by Burgess Meridith and others, extensive captured German film and first hand accounts from the participants
