Hello All --

You are invited to drop by Zeno's Warbird Video Drive-In (www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com (http://www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com)) and catch our three latest World War II aviation features for free online video viewing. This month "At the Matinee," we're featuring the return of a Drive-In Favorite, "TARGET FOR TODAY," exciting Thunderbolt footage in "P-47 COMBAT OPERATIONS, " and "Recognition of the Japanese Zero Fighter, starring "the Gipper" Lt. Ronald Reagan as "Jimmy Saunders."

TARGET FOR TODAY The 8th Air Force Strikes Germany This is the classic World War II documentary of a "maximum effort" US Eighth Air Force daylight bombing mission deep into Germany. There are no actors 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, including a strike on the FW 190 plant at Marrienburg, from early planning through final touch down and crew debriefings are covered in this very detailed account. There is probably no better account of the theory, strategy and tactics of an unescorted US Army Air Force bomber raid in early 1943.

P-47 COMBAT OPERATIONS This film was shown to brief 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 theater of war, including very rare footage of P-47 Thunderbolt napalm attacks against Japanese pill boxes in the Pacific. You'll hear the action described in their own words, including a liberal sprinkling of vintage pilot slang. Narrated by Ronald Reagan.

Recognition of the Japanese Zero Fighter. Lieutenant "Jimmy Saunders" (Ronald Reagan) learns how to tell a P-40 from Japanese A6M Zero the hard way. (That's a very angry Craig Stevens aka "Peter Gunn" on the receiving end.) This film contains plenty of interesting info about what US pilots were told about Japan's most produced and feared fighter and how to spot it. Includes seldom seen footage of a captured Zeke doing spectacular aerobatics. The Gipper gives a very convincing performance as a cocky yet apprehensive new P-40 pilot, Jimmy Saunders.

If you haven't stopped by Zeno's Drive-In before, we also feature 1940-45 vintage WWII Army & Navy films 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, Stearman N2S and a different WWII documentaries every month "At the Matinee."

That's over 14 hours of rockin' props for free viewing over the internet. See detailed charts, diagrams, and interior photos from original WWII pilot's manuals too.

Finally, our "Control Tower" page has the largest collection of World War II Aviation links on the 'net

So drop your flaps & drop in!
