    catch our latest World War II aviation features for free online video
    viewing. This month "At the Matinee," we're showing "Winged Artillery,"
    featuring 75mm canon firing B-25s, "Target for Tonight,"A classic film
    featuring an RAF Wellington bomber on a night mission to Germany, and "P-47
    Combat Operations," featuring Thunderbolts in action in a variety of roles.

    And we just added a free download of a complete 50 page De Havilland
    Mosquito FB V1 pilot's manual for Mossy fans everywhere.! (The downloads we
    added recently for Spitfire II and Me-262 pilot's manuals are extremely

    Now showing online "At the Matinee"
    * "Winged Artillery" Nine 75mm canon 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. Also
    features amazingly well preserved and very rare color footage of daily life
    of air crew and ground personnel stationed on Apamama and Tarawa. As a
    bonus, you'll watch Sea Bees using heavy equipment to transform these hard
    won tropical atolls into fully functioning air bases and ground crews
    maintaining the Mitchell's massive canons.
    * "Target for Tonight" RAF Bomber Command in a Night Action. This vintage
    film follows the crew "F for Freddie," a Vicker's Wellington medium bomber
    (Millerton Station, Group 33), through an entire low level night mission
    attacking a oil storage depot at a rail yard.Notice how the film highlights
    the participation of not only servicemen from all classes from around the
    British Isles, but also Canadians and a navigator that sounds a lot like a
    yank volunteer. The film exemplifies the understatement, dry humor, and
    "business as usual" approach typical of British information films of the
    period, along with a clear "get the job done" attitude.
    * "P-47 Combat Operations" This film was shown to 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
    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. Another fine narration by Ronald Reagan

    And 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.

    Finally, we've revised, expanded, and updated our "Control Tower" links
    page, which has the largest collection of World War II Aviation links on
    the 'net So drop your flaps drop in!
