In the theaters for one day on 5/23, there is a new B17 documentary with some newly discovered footage. 

Woo hoo!

thanks for the find

:honoring:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

it was fantastic, sitting in a large, completely full theater       i totally expected to be the only one there      99% baby boomers

 

there's an interesting fascinating segment at the end about how they digitally cleaned up the original rudimentary color film stock...  ty coders and computers

 

bone-chilling cold doesn't begin to describe it        one man touched a piece of window glass with his palm at altitude, it froze to it, resulting in amputation back on the ground

I was too cheap to watch it in the theater, watched it on HBO.

 

Was wondering if the Memphis Belle's dress changed color due to the colorization, but photos are showing blue, red and brown versions.  That should be an interesting story.
