Baa Baa Black Sheep is a great Movie loosely based on the novel by Gregory "Pappy" Boyington. The airplane scenes are outstanding and the historical facts that are introduced by original newsreel broadcasts make the historical facts clear. I was fascinated by the book as well as the movie and the TV series.
