Default Web Videos: Thunderbolt! Restored, Patton Fights Rommel, Yeager'sMig, Midway & more

Hello World War 2 & jet aircraft fans --

You are invited to drop by Zeno's Drive-In
for this month's flight of five exciting aviation & combat documentary
films playing over the Internet. We're celebrating the 13th
Anniversary of Zeno's Warbird Video Drive-In with the premiere of our
exclusive restored and extended release of the all time P-47 classic"
Thunderbolt!," plus another exciting color feature film premier &
three more Drive-In favorites

As always, all of the videos showing on our web site are for your free
viewing pleasure. The movies playing at the Matinee are viewable in
both RealVideo and Windows Media Player streaming video formats

Now showing "At the Matinee" at Zeno's Drive-In

"Thunderbolt! Reborn" Color New - Exclusive special digitally restored
Edition (C2010) from an archival print with more than 5 minutes of
additional content & directional stereo sound. "Thunderbolt!"
Chronicles the exploits of the P-47 Thunderbolt pilots of the
"Fighting Cocks" of the 65th Fighter squadron, 57th Fighter Group.
New! Additional footage of 64th FS "Black Scorpions," 66th FS
"Terminators" and Free French P-47s. Based on the island of Corsica
off the northwest coast of the Italian boot, the 57th FG flew from
behind the enemy's flank. As part of "Operation Strangle," they
continuously attacked highways, bridges, ammo dumps, railroads and
just about anything that moved to choke off the flow of supplies to
the Axis front line. "Our new digitally restored print is a huge leap
in quality with great new additional content. The stereo sound really
brings these birds to life" Zeno

"News From the Front in North Africa 1942" Color. New Premier Restored
video with color correction.(c2010) 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 from early
World War 2. Highlights: A low altitude dogfight between P-38s.
Spitfires and Messerschmidts, as photographed from the ground. Footage
of actual tactical combat maneuvering between fighters is extremely
rare! The Battle of Taboura, Tunisia unfolds in broad valley right out
of a scene from "Patton." German tanks and infantry advance in the
open and are turned back by withering Allied gun fire. These are some
of the first, and possibly only, color shots of Tiger 1 tanks in
combat, taking and returning fire. (Tigers were so new that they are
misidentified as "Mark IVs").Very low level Luftwaffe bombing and
staffing runs against shipping, towns, troops and airfields by JU
88s. He 111's and rare shots of ME 210s flying right overhead. Color
footage of Allied forces, including Grant medium and Stewart light
takes, half tracks, jeeps, and US and British soldiers in combat kit
both at rest and in fierce fighting.

"John Ford's Battle of Midway" Academy Award Winner Color Directed by
four time Oscar Winner John Ford New Color Corrected Edition from
archival sources. (C2010) This stirring documentary was shot during
the intense June 4th Japanese carrier plane attacks on Midway Island
and by Navy Combat Cameramen aboard the USS Yorktown during the epic
carrier battle, along with color gun camera film of air to air and air
to sea combat. Highlights include memorable scenes from the Marine
Base on Midway, airfield B-17s leaving to attack the Japanese fleet,
patrolling PBYs, action packed Japanese attacks on the Yorktown and up
close shots of the Yorktown's squadron VF3 and their F4F Wild Cats,
including aces John S. "Jimmy' Thach ("The Thach Weave") and Lt. E.
Scott McCuskey.

"We Flew the Mig" Restored & optimized for web streaming (C2010). 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 Yeager 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. Nice
footage of the Mig's armaments too.
