There were a total of 11 airmen on board. The bombers arrived over Rabaul at 8, feet 2, meters at p. Anti-aircraft artillery fire was light and ineffective. The bomber crews claimed several ships sunk and damaged. One of the Bs had been badly damaged and diverted to Milne Bay. Four of the five Bs which returned to Port Moreseby were damaged. San Antonio Rose , the B carrying General Walker, was seen trailing smoke and diving through clouds. It was not seen again.

As commander of the 5th Bomber Command during the period from 5 September , to 5 January , Brig. Walker repeatedly accompanied his units on bombing missions deep into enemy-held territory.
From the lessons personally gained under combat conditions, he developed a highly efficient technique for bombing when opposed by enemy fighter airplanes and by antiaircraft fire.
On 5 January , in the face of extremely heavy antiaircraft fire and determined opposition by enemy fighters, he led an effective daylight bombing attack against shipping in the harbor at Rabaul, New Britain, which resulted in direct hits on 9 enemy vessels. During this action his airplane was disabled and forced down by the attack of an overwhelming number of enemy fighters.

Kenneth Morgan , Jan 5, Juliet , Jan 5, Brady distinguished himself while serving in the Republic of Vietnam commanding a UH-1H ambulance helicopter, volunteered to rescue wounded men from a site in enemy held territory which was reported to be heavily defended and to be blanketed by fog.
To reach the site he descended through heavy fog and smoke and hovered slowly along a valley trail, turning his ship sideward to blow away the fog with the backwash from his rotor blades. Despite the unchallenged, close-range enemy fire, he found the dangerously small site, where he successfully landed and evacuated 2 badly wounded South Vietnamese soldiers.
He was then called to another area completely covered by dense fog where American casualties lay only 50 meters from the enemy.
Two aircraft had previously been shot down and others had made unsuccessful attempts to reach this site earlier in the day. With unmatched skill and extraordinary courage, Maj. Brady made 4 flights to this embattled landing zone and successfully rescued all the wounded. On his third mission of the day Maj. Brady once again landed at a site surrounded by the enemy. The friendly ground force, pinned down by enemy fire, had been unable to reach and secure the landing zone.
Although his aircraft had been badly damaged and his controls partially shot away during his initial entry into this area, he returned minutes later and rescued the remaining injured. Shortly thereafter, obtaining a replacement aircraft, Maj. Brady was requested to land in an enemy minefield where a platoon of American soldiers was trapped. A mine detonated near his helicopter, wounding 2 crewmembers and damaging his ship. In spite of this, he managed to fly 6 severely injured patients to medical aid.
Throughout that day Maj. Brady utilized 3 helicopters to evacuate a total of 51 seriously wounded men, many of whom would have perished without prompt medical treatment. Sarge , Jan 6, They lifted off from Dover Castle, Kent, England at about p. With sufficient buoyancy to just lift the two aeronauts and their equipment, the Channel crossing was made at a very low altitude. During the flight, all ballast, their equipment and most of their clothing were jettisoned.
They crossed the French coast at about p. Concerned that aviation authorities would prevent his flight, Menzies had said that his destination was Perth, Western Australia. While en route, severe weather blew the Avian off course.
The airplane flipped over. Guy Menzies was unhurt. His flight had taken 11 hours, 45 minutes. The object was observed by four members of the control tower staff for approximately 35 minutes, from — p. Prior to the sighting by Godman Tower personnel, there had been several telephone calls to the tower from the Kentucky Highway Patrol, reporting numerous sightings by people in two towns which were miles kilometers apart.
The reported sightings were of a large, circular craft, moving at high speed. Two pilots broke off because of low fuel, and Mantell became separated from his wingman. He reported that he was climbing through 15, feet 4, meters with a large metallic object in sight.
He then disappeared. It is probable that Captain Mantell lost consciousness due to lack of oxygen. Captain Mantell was dead. His wrist watch was stopped at The Air Force determined that Mantell was either chasing Venus or a top secret Project Skyhook balloon, and that he had lost consciousness due to hypoxia. The fighter broke up in flight. Looking back with the advantage of 70 years hindsight, the most likely explanation for the Mantell UFO is the balloon.
Is it an inside joke? Or is it just plain old-fashioned plagiarism? Nearing the End Sargebri 20 March This is probably one of the best of the "Beach Party" flicks and also marks the beginning of the end. When this film was released, little did anyone know that this would be the next to last appearance for both Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello and that within a year the whole "Beach Party" genre would be finished. So this film can be seen as the last gasp before they waves died down.
Fun in the sun doesn't get much better than this! The actors deserve our respect for not only agreeing to work for peanuts, but also for filming during the chilly days of November so the film could be released the following spring, all so the American public could enjoy watching these kids' seemingly happy summer vacations.
Beach Blanket Bingo is the name of the game! Let's make one thing clear, "Beach Blanket Bingo" is certainly not the artistic high-point of this medium called cinema, but that doesn't mean it's not fun!
Frankie and Annette are back with all their beach buddies, including one named Bonehead Goo-Goo or Poo-Poo to his friends. In this one, Frankie decides that sky-diving is the way to Annette's heart.
There's also a subplot involving a mermaid love interest for Bonehead. He's the perfect comedy bad guy. He is my idol Watch the movie and you'll understand that last line!
Don Rickles is also loads of fun, especially in one scene where it appears he was allowed to improvise. This was the fourth official entry in American-International's "Beach Party" series ie. The score is perfect earlys pop with everyone singing in full reverb , and the various comedians Paul Lynde, Don Rickles and Buster Keaton are allowed to play off their strengths. By this point, the series is beginning to look for new areas to explore having already dealt with surfing, water skiing, body building, etc.
In fact, the shift away from the beach scene to the hippie scene in the late 60s would spell the end of the series only a year or so later. Beyond the sky diving, the film actually extends some of the supporting characters beyond the limited schtick they had been given previously. Stock villain Eric von Zipper Harvey Lembeck is given tons more screen time--and even gets his own musical number for the first time!
This flick is fun for a variety of reasons, but the biggest attractions are Buster Keaton and the great Timothy Carey as South Dakota Slim. Watch for the brief moment in which Carey reprises his infamous virility dance from "Poor White Trash". And if you don't know what I'm talking about, I suggest you run out and rent "Poor White Trash" right now.
But that's another story Definitely the best of the sixty's beach movies. Not because of the plot, which asymptotically approaches stupid before crossing right over it. Or, the music, which is banality incarnate. It is the cast It is comforting to see them all in the same movie. Paul Lynde is just as nasty as usual. Rickles manages to go off script and insult cast members for a while.
Linda Evans just stands around looking beautiful; and, Deborah Walley But, what makes this movie a hoot for me is seeing Buster Keaton, still working in the sixties I love watching the man work. And, the woman playing Keaton's sidekick is about as close to a perfect hour-glass figure as one can get without a corset and a lot of work. If you only see on Frankie and Annette beach movie, make it this one.
Remember though: I said 'IF' After the silly title song, the movie starts out being about a new singer promoting an album to the beach-nuts with a faked freefall from an airplane. The do-anything promoter is played by Paul Lynde with his usual sleezeball-style and the singer is a young Linda Evans. Everyone including the before-mentioned couple now wants to skydive and they hook-up with Don Rickles as the head of the skydiving company. Rickles is even able to throw in a mini-standup routine where he puts down everyone in the audience, as is his usual shtick.
In a sidestory, the character Bonehead encounters a mermaid which brings a little variety and fun to the storyline. I hate to say it, but that's about it for this movie in a nutshell. A few songs are thrown-in some better than others , plenty of booty-shaking, and a silent episode with Buster Keaton playing a kind of Benny Hill-like character adds to the light-hearted fare.
If this is all that you're looking for in a movie, then this one is the perfect movie for you!! Otherwise, stay away. Lhartman6 8 March The best part of about this movie is trying to spot the extras- surf legend cum American Icon Miki Dora does the surf stunts and stunt doubles for Frankie Avalon.
This hilarious, heartwarming story runs through May 3rd! Monday night was absolutely a night to remember.

December 5th — January 3rd : Peter and the Starcatcher.
August 6th — September 4th : Pirates of Penzance. Getting this particular show up in the short rehearsal process was a challenge for us all — there was lots of choreography to learn, thousands of cues to write, lightning fast costume changes to perfect, and last minute decisions to remember.
But, as always, we got it all done. Opening night was marvelous and we were able to celebrate our accomplishments at a swanky opening night party complete with sushi and kamikazes!
