Flight of Old 666
INCREDIBLE STORY OF BRAVERY
Of The "Greatest Generation
For those of us who were born and lived through WWII, this will put a lump in your throat. For those
born afterwards, it's a valuable historical film of how dedicated our US armed forces are... no matter what war it is.
Two Medals of Honor, seven DFCs and six Purple Hearts were awarded during this mission flown on the 16 Jun 43.
W.W.2 USAF pilot Jay Zeamer & his"renegade" aircrew rescued this old Boeing B-17E("666"-an abbreviation of the
tail number,it also had a reputation for getting"Shot to Hell",on every mission) from the scrapheap.They
"hotrodded"it with extra,larger calibre cannons...an amazing story.
