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 showing a memorable "Spring Triple Feature," "A Day with the A-36s,""Angel in Overalls," and an all time Drive-In favorite, "The Fighting Lady."

"A Day with the A-36s" This unique documentary features very rare color combat footage of an A-36A "Invader," (ground attack version of the P-51 Mustang) fighter/bomber squadron in action in Sicily. The A-36A 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 and twin 50 cal. machine guns on this fast and powerful attack plane, very unusual on an American fighter. There are dive breaks on the wings too! You'll see ground crews doing their critical support work, including fueling, rearming and maintaining these sleek birds. This exciting film includes incredible cockpit views of actual ground attack runs as well as fascinating views of a captured Italian air base. One of the hidden gems in this film are up close views of captured or destroyed Axis aircraft, including an He 111, FW-190, Ju 88, and a rare view of an intact Italian Macchi 202 "Folgore" in full desert cammo.

"Angel in Overalls" This film was developed to show US Lockheed P-38 production line workers the Lightning at war in a wide variety of combat roles. The dramatic framing for the piece involves a straggling B-24 that is saved from certain destruction by the arrival of "Angels in Overalls" -- P-38s. You'll see all aspects of Lightnings in action, including air-to-air gun camera, bombing, rocketing and photo recon. There's a cameo by Air Corps P-38 ace of aces **** Bong too. This dramatic film is a must see for all P-38 fans! The dramatic ending brings home a sobering reminderthat the life of the fighter pilot was risky and often dangerous. Many young pilots made the ultimate sacrifice.

"The Fighting Lady" follows the fictionalized career of an Essex Class aircraft carrier from the Marcus Islands campaign, through Tinian, Truk, the "Mariana's Turkey" and much more. But don't let the term "fictionalized" miss lead you. All of the footage shown in this fascinating composite 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. ("The Fighting Lady was reakky the nickname given to the Yorktowns, CV-5 & CV-10.) You'll see dramatic action showing Hellcats, Hell Divers, Corsairs on deck and in the air, including exciting dive bombing, anti-aircraft, and gun camera footage and some amazing walkaway crash landings. And there's a fascinating tour below decks too. But most memorably, you'll see the faces of the officers and enlisted men of the "Fighting Lady" at work and at rest, making it all possible. Powerfully narrated by Lt. Robert Taylor.


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.

And We justed added new exerpts from a P-40 pilot's manual to our "More Neat Stuff" section, which includes pilot manual performance charts, systems diagrams & detailed photos for 13 World War II fighters & bombers.

Finally, we recently revised, expanded, and updated our "Control Tower" linkis page, which has the largest collection of World War II Aviation links on the 'net

So drop your flaps & drop in!
