There is no such thunder in history as the deep-throated roar of the mighty, four-engined B-17s that streamed across the skies in World War II. This work re-creates a vanished era and a great and gallant plane, a plane that could absorb 3000 enemy bullets, fly with no rudder and complete its mission on two engines. A plane that American pilots flew at Pearl Harbour, Tunis, Midway, Palermo, Schweinfurt, Regensberg, Normandy and Berlin, in thousands of missions and through hundreds of thousands of miles of flak-filled skies. A plane that proved itself in every combat theatre as the greatest heavy bomber of World War II.
