B-17 Flying Fortress
Though the Americans had various other bombers in World War II, without doubt Boeing's B-17 Flying Fortress is considered The Bomber Of The War. Rugged, stable, easy to fly and capable of taking much battle damage it was universally loved by its crews and widely recognised by the public for its vital war roles.

The three separate films on this DVD aim to convey some of the unique characteristics of the B-17 At War and its essential contribution towards victory.

Fortress Of The Sky
This is a rarely seen film specially made for the Boeing Aircraft Company. 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 Midway
The 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 Raids
17th August 1943 was the date of the USAAF's 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-17's suffered fierce attacks from enemy fighters and very heavy flak, of 200 B-17's 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. A most memorable experience., B-17 Flying Fortress
