Saturday, April 20th, 2024

Legacy Expeditions, Folds of Honor announce documentary film premiere dates

AUSTIN—April 17, 2024— The much-anticipated documentary “Triple 7: They Said It Couldn’t Be Done,” directed and produced by Dan Myrick (“The Blair Witch Project”) and produced by Kristian Krempel, is set to premiere in five cities in May. The film follows a team of nine former U.S. and Canadian special operations service members as they attempt to achieve skydiving’s most elusive feat, the Triple 7— seven skydives on seven continents in seven days. Spearheaded by retired Navy SEAL Mike Sarraille, the film aims to raise $7 million for Folds of Honor.

“Triple 7” will roll out the red carpet between May 11-16 in New York, Tampa, Austin, Dallas, and Los Angeles, respectively. Expedition members and filmmakers will be available to the media in the days leading up to the New York premiere and at each city’s red-carpet event.

“The road to this theatrical release for ‘Triple 7’ has been a deeply personal and collective commitment at Legacy Expeditions. Spanning three years, the endeavor of the expedition and creating the documentary was significant, but the cause—to etch the legacy of our fallen into the annals of history—made every challenge worth facing,” said Sarraille. “The excitement of the adventure and the emotional depth of our shared stories will, I hope, touch the hearts of viewers, both through laughter and tears, reminding us all to never forget and to forever honor those who gave everything.”

US Air Force Honors 100th Bomb Group’s Legacy with ‘Masters of the Air’ special Screening

Wednesday, February 7th, 2024

JOINT BASE ANDREWS, Md. (AFNS) —

Joint Base Andrews hosted the cast and creative team of AppleTV+’s “Masters of the Air,” along with World War II veterans, Department of the Air Force senior leaders, and service members for a reception and special screening of the series’ first episode, Jan. 27.

Based on Donald Miller’s 2007 book of the same title, “Masters of the Air” follows Airmen of the Eighth Air Force’s 100th Bomb Group, commonly referred to as the “Bloody Hundredth,” as they conduct bombing raids over Nazi-occupied Germany and grapple with the frigid conditions and lack of oxygen during combat conducted at 25,000 feet in the air.

Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall expressed his gratitude to everyone for taking part in this historic event at Joint Base Andrews, especially noting the three senior living B-17 Eighth Air Force officers in the room, as well as Tuskegee Airmen and other WWII veterans and family members.

“We got a lot of great participation today,” Kendall said. “We’re extremely grateful to have our veterans here today. These men fought in the most difficult air environment in history. They built a legacy that our current Airmen and Guardians hope to live up to every single day.”

Retired Air Force Maj. John “Lucky” Luckadoo shared his own moment of recollection. After serving in WWII as a B-17 pilot in the 100th BG, he flew a total of 25 combat missions earning multiple honors, including the Distinguished Flying Cross presented to recipients for acts of heroism while in aerial flight.

“I cannot tell you what a privilege it is to be in the august (dignified) company of brass,” said Luckadoo, the 101-year-old who remains active in WWII remembrance events today. “I was extremely fortunate to have been a member that is being memorialized in the film that you’ll be seeing, “The Masters of the Air.” It’s indeed an honor and a privilege, to be here – actually, it’s an honor to be anywhere!”

The Air Force’s top leaders attended the reception and screening, such as Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David W. Allvin, Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force JoAnne S. Bass and commanders of Air Force major commands around the globe. Airmen of all ranks were also afforded the opportunity to experience the special screening.

“I thought the ‘Masters of the Air’ show was outstanding,” said Senior Airman Ernst Motte, audience member of the special screening with the 1st Helicopter Squadron Aviation Resource Management office at JB Andrews. “It was really great to meet all the cast members and a couple of the retired WWII pilots. The film really spoke to the severity of the war and made me really proud of our history.”

Kirk Saduski, Playtone producer and executive, closed the evening by addressing WWII veterans and active service members in the crowd.

“It is too awful to contemplate a world in which the Allies didn’t win WWII,” said Saduski, who previously worked as executive-in-charge of the HBO series of “Band of Brothers” and co-producer of “The Pacific.”

“It is impossible to conceive of an Allied victory without the United States Air Force in Europe, and the Pacific, and the CBI (China-Burma-India) Theater,” Saduski said. “We draw the applause of the crowd. You earn the affection and admiration of our country. In the name of Playtone, Apple, and, if I may, our country – thank you.”

Latest Gear-Setup Advancements for Sniper and Long-Range Reconnaissance Missions Spotlighted in New Video from Lindnerhof

Saturday, December 23rd, 2023

LENGGRIES, GERMANY (21 December 2023)—Lindnerhof-Taktik today released a video that offers an in-depth look at the ways sniper and reconnaissance gear setups have evolved over the past two decades.

Hosted by former special-operations professionals Jakob Kolbeck (now the CEO of Lindnerhof) and Björn Herbert (the brand’s international technical products sales manager), the video traces the transformation of these types of gear setups from traditional smock-style outfits to cutting-edge configurations for modern operational needs.

Throughout the video, Kolbeck and Herbert draw from their own real-life experiences to underscore the importance of professionals opting for dynamic gear setups that align with mission requirements and the threat levels likely to be encountered during the course of those operations.

“There has been a shift in perceptions as to not only what to carry but also how to carry,”

Kolbeck indicated. “No longer is it seen as viable for snipers to stuff everything they need into their jackets. Now the accepted practice is to take a fully modular approach to carrying.” Modularity facilitates streamlining, and this, according to Herbert, affords operators greater versatility as well as mobility.

Presented in the video are gear configurations employing micro-rig and chest-rig systems chosen for their ability to optimise the balance between protection and agility for heavy and streamlined loadouts alike. “Both of the showcased chest-rig setups support increased firepower and adaptability by allowing operators to, for example, add various pouches,” said Herbert. “Their real-world effectiveness is captured in the video when we put them to the test with live-fire drills conducted on a shooting range.”

Brimming with lighthearted moments, this informative video delivers “a unique glimpse into the thought-process behind the creation of gear engineered to meet the demands of modern snipers and reconnaissance operators,” Kolbeck promised.
