      • This documentary film tells the amazing story of America's B-17 the Flying Fortress and Britain's Lancaster Bomber, the most renowned bombers of World War II. The B-17's of the 'Mighty Eighth' with its robust unique design took the flight across Europe in broad daylight, at the expense of horrendous losses of men and aircraft. Star of the B-17 section was the Memphis Belle, the first UK-based B-17 to successfully complete 25 missions and return to the USA a true hero.


          Narrated by the much-missed Edward Woodward, a superb blend of men and machines, courage and honour told in this definitive documentary film


        The latter half of this moving and descriptive documentary traces the development of its British counterpart, the , which is associated in our minds with the legendary raid on the Ruhr Dams by 617 squadron, otherwise known as the Dam Busters.


        Steve Kingsman, a Lancaster engineer, says: "It's not what you expect from an aeroplane, you have to realise that it's a fighting aeroplane, a bomber designed to deliver a load, not for comfort and speed. It's smelly, rattles and vibrates but is an experience that you will never forget. It's a cliche really, but whenever I used to fly in it I always used to think of the guys that flew in it over 50 years ago. They couldn't get out in an hour's time and have a smoke and a wander around, they were up there for seven, eight or nine hours, they were getting shot at, it was a bumpy ride. It was an honour really to fly this aeroplane."
