In the episode "Decision", Frank is sitting in the co-pilot's seat. This is the only time that this has happened. See more »
The B17 Picadilly Lilly is an "F" model, yet throughout the series, combat footage of "G" model B17s are cut into the scenes. The main difference between the models is that the G models feature a "chin" turret under the nose of the plane. See more »
First time for me, it gets better by the episode !!
I had never heard of this series, yes I had seen the movie, it was terrific, now my husband and I are really enjoying this Series. No one could play the part of Frank Savage, like Robert Lansing does. He has all the Human Passion, that a man in his position requires. I am in awe at how he always gives a man the benifit of the Doubt, the men want to be what he wants them to be, and do what is expected of them.
A very well done Series as far as I have seen. It is one that I want on video, as it shows us how fear must have engulfed the men in the air force. Little do we know how their necks would have been raw from turning their heads constantly, searching for the enemy, a heartwarming series, that make us say "Thank You" to all the men and women in World War11, whether on the ground or in the air, or in the boats on the ocean.
Thanks to everyone of you, we have freedom, let us be Thankful.
