Amazing Flight of a B-17 Bomber

The American Can-Do Spirit!
On June 16, 1943, in the Asian-Pacific theater of the Second World War, a lone unescorted B-17 American bomber, on a crucial mapping mission, found itself surrounded by 17 Japanese Zero fighter planes. Whereas typical aerial dogfights last a minute, the B-17 survived a 45-minute dogfight. This is an animation reënactment of what happened.
This incident was the most highly decorated mission by an American air crew in the Second World War.

Couldn’t stop watching this once it started,made me cry,made me laugh and made me DAMN PROUD!! the “Fraud” in the white house couldn’t hold a candle to these men. Too bad these liberals cannot understand why they are free to spew their trash. We owe our Veterans and Soldiers infinite gratitude. {Forever}
