Zeno's Warbird Video Drive-In August 2012 Newsletter

Hello World War 2 & jet aircraft fans --

You are invited to drop by Zeno's Warbird Video Drive-In to view our August selection of six exciting World War 2 & jet videos streaming over the Web. We're commemorating the heroic missions flown against the Ploesti oil fields 69 years ago with three films, plus three more of my personal favorite features. If you haven't stopped by recently, all our films are now streaming in high quality, cross platform & device broadband. video

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 in August "At the Matinee" at Zeno's Drive-In. Free admission!

B-25s: Winged Artillery Restored with additional sound 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.

98th Bomb Group; B-24 Liberators Over North Africa Exclusive original 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."

Raids on the Ploesti Oil Fields 1942-43 Two films commemorating the costly bombing missions flown by the US Army Air Force against the Ploesti oil fields in Romania in 1943-44. August 1st marks the 69th Anniversary of the first mission

B-24s Get Back! The B-24 bomber could be amazingly durable, but it took a skilled crew to bring a crippled bird home. Here's a unique World War 2 training film that shows how it was done.

Boeing B-47 Stratojet Combat Maneuvers Restored Color See the big Stratojet bomber do an Immelman turn, barrel rolls and more! Cameras located all over the aircraft give unique views.

Mastering the Thompson Submachine Gun: Marksmanship Everything you need to know to become a crack short 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. See the Thompson used in a training field exercise. Firing at aircraft.

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-58! -

A man was a customer in the independent pharmacy I worked at. He said he was a pilot on some of those Ploesti raids (or all of them). He always used to curse the people who planned them. Said they were suicide runs. I never pointed out that he made it. :) But, I'm sure they were brutal.
