* 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!

Zeno's Warbird Video Drive-In Big November 2014 Newsletter

Hello World War 2 & jet aircraft fans --

You are invited to drop by Zeno's Warbird Video Drive-In www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com

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 November "At the Matinee" www.zenoswarbirdvideos...TINEE.html at Zeno's Drive-In. Free admission!


*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!

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!

*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!

* 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!

* 98 Bomb Group B-24 Liberators Over North Africa. An exclusive production. This recently discovered footage shows Medal of Honor winner Col. John R. "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."

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.

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!

("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!
