It traces the early development of the B-17, its production processes, USAAF development and eventual combat action. The colour quality is very good and this makes the air sequences stunning. All, a well crafted filmed introduction to a most important aircraft.B-17 MidwayThe battle of the Midway is generally considered the most significant engagement of the pacific. Theatre of War.US victory here turned the tide and stopped the Japanese advance. B-17 Flying Fortress, along with B-26 Marauders, actually performed a defensive at Midway. They sought out, bombed and strafed the attacking Japanese carrier force. In doing so they played a mighty part in the victory at Midway.Schweinfurt And Regensburg Raids17th August 1943 was the date of the USAAFs first long distance bomber raid against targets deep inside Germany. Unlike the RAF, USAAF bombers operated in daylight. The objectives were the Messerschmitt factory at Regensburg near the Austrian border and the ball bearing plants at Schweinfurt. Long distance ruled out close fighter escorts and bad weather played havoc with precise filming. Consequently the B-17s suffered fierce attacks from enemy fighters and very heavy flak, of 200 B-17s sent out 60 were shot down. This was a major disaster for USAAF. Many lessons were learnt, particularly the need for long range escort fighters. The terrible story of the raids is told vis dramatic footage.
