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. Hosted by '"Yehudi the Chameleon," the action is centered around a P-39 Airacobra base in the Pacific and is chocked full of useful information & "how-tos."

*World War 2 USN Ordnancemen NEW-Restored Color! This films is an amazing look behind the scenes at what made the US Navy's Air Arm tick during World War 2. Aviation Ordnancemen handled all aspects of naval aircraft weapons systems, including installation, maintenance and arming & loading See them bore sight the guns on a F6F Hellcat and load it up it with 50 caliber rounds, arm and mount a 1,000 pound bomb on an SBD Dauntless dive bomber, load a torpedo into a TBF Avenger, mount a torpedo under the wing of a Coronado amphibious bomber and more.

*Air Reconnaissance & Observation NEW!. Airborne intelligence gathering was an essential aid to land and sea combat operations in World War 2 This film was produced by the Army Signal Corps as an introduction for Airborne Observers, including visual reporting, photographic and artillery spotting. Their activities are shown in detail

*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.

*The Army Air force Report -1944 This fascinating film report on the state of the Army Air Force was prepared by the Office of Strategic Services (forerunner to the C.I.A.) and delivered to the American people by Air Force C-in-C General Hap Arnold in early 1944. We know of no better picture of the organization and operation of US Air Force power in the midst of World War 2.

*Luftwaffe Finis - The end of the German Air Force. Color footage of top Luftwaffe leaders and pilots taken as they fell into Allied hands at the end of World War II. You'll see startlingly realistic color footage of Herman Goering, Adolf Galland, Hans Ulrich Rudel and many more. Captured aircraft are shown as well, including an Me 262, the first jet fighter, and an FW 190. You'll be amazed when you see these color images. A must have for World War II aviation fans

*White Tailed Marauders: The 323rd Bomb Group & their B-26s. Exclusive 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 France. All color footage really brings this bygone era startlingly back to life.

* B-52 Vietnam - 4258th Strategic Wing operations out of U Tapao Air Base Thailand The focus of this dramatic film is an "Arc Light" bombing mission flown by Pilot Captain George Dietrich and the crew of B-52 D "075," 4258th Strategic Wing out of U Tapao, Thailand in support of the besieged marine base at Khe Sahn in 1968. You'll see every aspect of the mission from Wing briefing, pre-fight check & takeoff, through the bomb run and final touch down/

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!

*Hollywood Goes to War; The First Motion Picture Unit NEW One of the most common questions I've been asked about the World War 2 aviation training films l show is "Who made these?'' The answer is the subject this fascinating report, 'The Army Air Forces First Motion Picture Unit" A massive Hollywood studio in Culver City California was turned over solely for producing these training and information films, staffed by experienced men & women enlisted into the Army from all the trades necessary to produce a top flight motion picture.

*XB-70 Supersonic Bomber Flight Test Program NEW! This remarkable film, produced by North American Aviation, gives a concise overview of the early phases of the XB-70A aircraft design, construction, development and testing in 1964. You'll see Phase one & two flight tests and "proof loading" structural tests

*Winged Artillery. EXCLUSIVE! 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. This is one of my favorite World War 2 documentary. 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.

* 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. I added subtitles to ID many of them. This film was developed by personnel at the Army Air Corps top secret Wright Field flight test facility during World War 2 to give pilots the low down on what to expect if they joined their aircraft testing program. As such, the film is both very informative, with plenty of info about flight testing at that time, including climb, level flight, take off and landing, test instruments, and pilot responsibilities.

*German World War 2 Newsreels; JG 26, 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.

*Mission to Rabaul. Rabaul, a large natural harbor on the eastern end of the huge Island of New Britain (located northeast of New Guinea in the Southwest Pacific) was an essential strategic linchpin for the Japanese from which they could project their forces throughout the region. They poured tens of thousands of troops, hundreds of airplanes, and thousands of tons of supplies and material into this base to make it a mighty fortress. The Allies' brilliant solution to the Rabaul conundrum was to isolate it, slowly starve it and bypass it -- rather than assault it directly

*The Stilwell Road & the China Burma India Campaign The story of China-Burma-India (CBI) campaign is one of the most under-reported, yet most dramatic, exciting and important actions in World War 2.Narrated by Ronald Reagan, this is a very detailed strategic and tactical account of the entire campaign in the CBI, from the Chinese construction of the Burma Road in 1939 through the Japanese invasion of Burma, Allied counterattacks, Japanese counterattacks and the opening of the new Stilwell road to China in 1945. Lots of dramatic combat footage on all fronts is supplemented by behind the scenes looks at logistics, jungle hospitals and detailed maps that put diverse operations in context.

*Hell in Normandy - A Spaghetti War Movie 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? Some might say I wasted my time restoring the color, but it was a fun way to spend a snowy afternoon.

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!

*Boeing B-17 Emergency Operations NEW! B-17 Emergency Operations is literally a "hot stove" session where veteran pilots give hands on advice on how to overcome some of their most challenging B-17 disaster scenarios. You'll learn how to handle dangerous situations like in flight engine fires, CG induced flight instability, stalls, emergency small field takeoffs & landings and a lot more. Plus there are animations, graphics and a dry sense of humor that make this one of the more enjoyable training films to come out of World War 2.

*Operation Sky Watch Nuclear Armed B-17s on High Alert NEW! This is a time capsule from the height of the Cold War. In this detailed reenactment, Major Paul Dobbins and the crew of B-52G Buzz Saw 48 are put on Airborne Alert, the highest stage of readiness during a crisis for SAC's strategic bombers in the early 1960s. Armed with a pair of nuclear tipped Hound Dog AGM-28 long range supersonic missiles, a load of A-Bombs and ADM-20 Quail jet powered decoys designed to fool enemy radars, they're sent to a predetermined patrol area near the Arctic Circle.

*416th Bomb Group A-26 Invaders Attack. This is an original documentary I put together from silent, unedited archival film footage and stills. The essential roll that "Attack" bombers like the A-20 & A-26 is one of the untold stories of World War 2. 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.

*P-47 Thunderbolt World Wide Combat Operations. This is an original documentary I put together from silent, unedited archival film footage and stills. The essential roll that "Attack" bombers like the A-20 & A-26 is one of the untold stories of World War 2. 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.

*The 25 Hour Day: F-105s in Vietnam Produced by Fairchild-Hiller-Republic for the US Air Force, this film offers a unique look inside F-105 "Thunderchief" ("The Thud!") fighter-bomber operations when the air campaign against North Vietnamese supply lines was ramping up into to high gear.

*World War 2 Machine Gun Shootout: US Vrs German. Produced by the US War Department to familiarize American troops with the actual sound and performance of various German automatic weapons including the Schmeisser MP-40 machine pistol and the MG-34 and MG-42 machine guns. The higher rate of fire of some of the German weapons was cause for concern among US soldiers. "Automatic Weapons: American vs.German" uses a pair of memorable "shootouts" to compare the relative strengths of the US weapons with their captured German counterparts.

*No Sweat: F-86 Flight Safety Training The star of this show is the featured aircraft, a North American F-86D -- the all weather version of the Sabre jet -- which is shown in considerable detail. Notice the radar scope mounted on the instrument panel. I especially like the pre-CGI aerial shots of a real Sabre slipping through the cumulus. A beautiful sight! The 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.

* John Ford's This is the first film ever made on how to be a spy in enemy territory produced by a secret intelligence service to train their agents. And 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) and plays a cameo role as a secret intelligence officer. (Ford appears at 5:40) It's been released to the public for the first time by the C.I.A. Archives.

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!

Carl Sandburg's "Bomber” NEW! This dramatic film was produced for and shown to defense plant workers, lauding and encouraging their important work. Three time Pulitzer Prize winning poet & biographer Carl Sandburg wrote the script for this stirring tribute to a marvelous aircraft, the B-26 medium bomber, and to the men & women who built them in the Martin's Marietta Georgia plant. Striking Life Magazine style documentary cinematography combines with Sandburg's powerful words to create an unforgettable portrait of Americans working 24/7/365 to help win the War.

Back Door Gang P-38s in Color-Exclusive! 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

U.S. Army Nurses in World War 2 NEW! Many American service men's fondest memories from World War 2 are of Army Nurses who treated them, comforted them and often helped save their lives. The film shows American nurses in training and providing vital services in field & general hospitals, on board trains and in the air -- on all fronts, around the World.

U.S. Marines Battle for the Marianas NEW! The Marianas Islands had tremendous strategic importance as bases for long range B-29 attacks against the Japanese home Islands, for air support for the upcoming invasion of the Philippines, and as a staging area for the planned invasion of Japan. While giving a good strategic overview of the campaign, this film focuses on the battle for Saipan, the initial landing point and lynch pin for the rest of the campaign. It was already the home of a large air base. 71,000 Americans took on 31,000 well entrenched Japanese. The fighting on Saipan differed from jungle fighting on Guadalcanal. Much of the southern part island is open country, suitable for tanks, but heavily fortified ridges ran the length of the island, where defenders had to be rooted out, yard by yard –vividly recorded here by Marine combat cameramen.

Saipan B-29 Superforts in Color & Stereo Sound - Exclusive Color footage shows the 73rd Bomb Wing, based on the island of Saipan in the Marianas, operating against Japan in early 1945. You'll 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. This film is very evocative of B-29 operations in the Spring of 1945

Medium Bombardment & Attack with the B-25 Mitchell This unique film was made to indoctrinate 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, far out of proportion to their numbers. Great footage of extremely low level actions! Covers operating in the tropics, squadron staff duties, planning missions, converting B-25s for ground attack and tactics for land & sea attacks "on the deck

U.S. Navy Aerial Torpedo Attack Originally developed to educate pilots about newly developed 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. You'll also see how far we've come from an analog world where printed charts were cross referenced during combat. All in all, a very interesting and revealing film

The Grumman A6-E Intruder: Any Weather, Any Time 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, the definitive version of the Navy's A-6 Intruder attack bomber with upgraded navigation and attack systems, was introduced in 1970 and first deployed on 9 December 1971.
