Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress
"The Memphis Belle". This
film is the story of the epic battle of the B-17 Flying Fortress's daylight
raids of the 8th air forces over Germany.
It was produced because the flights were so dangerous, that rarely did
any bomber and crew finish there 25 missions of duty. The 8th lost so many planes in the early days of these daylight
raids, that the tactic was almost canceled. The crew of the Memphis Belle
survived all 25 raids and Man, was this crew happy to be done. 38:48 Min's
"Mission Accomplished". This
is another B-17 Flying Fortress story of the 8th fighting the Germans. Black and white, it was the story of a day
and the life of the Bombers, Crew, and the ground Grew. Runtime 10:40 Min's
"Shoo Shoo Baby" and "Nine O Nine". This is one of the rarest films we
have. This is a short story about the
B-17G Flying Fortress that fought in the WW2 and after the war it was given to
Sweden. They converted it to an Airliner.
After a decade or so, The Sweeds
desired to give her back to the Americans as a token of thankfulness, The USAF flew it back to the USA and
restored her were the "Shoo Shoo Baby" is now on display. Great stuff. Plus, We filmed the restored B-17 called "Nine O Nine"
that flew in our neighborhood. Fun to
see! Runtime 12:13 Min's
