Storyline

Before their third bombing mission over Germany the crew of the Boomerang prayed under the wing of the aircraft. It was then that the pilot, Charles Arnett, knew he wasn't coming back. He went anyway. His son, Mark Arnett, spent 14 years making a documentary about how his dad was shot down over Germany, spent eleven months as prisoner of war, and returned home to marry the girl he had only met three times. But Mark could never seem to finish the documentary. In March of 2008, Mark's father passed away. Mark finished it in a week. Written by Mark William Arnett

The greatest WWII documentary I have ever seen!
23 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Baby Boomerang is a documentary that focuses on a man's World War II experience. The story is told by Mark Arnett, the son of war hero Charles Arnett. Normally I find documentaries a little slow and not very engaging, but this story pulled me right in. The film details Charles' experience from start to finish, all the while making you want to laugh and cry. Mark shows true film making genius as he pulls this story together to a very heart warming and satisfying ending. If you are curious about the people that kept our freedom alive, or if you personally know someone that did, then this movie is for you. Do yourself a favor and go to www.babyboomerang.com and watch it, you'll be glad you did.
