A despondent, lonely, and near-suicidal Chicago businessman and veteran WWII pilot is enticed to attend the 40th reunion of his old bombardment group in England. His recent professional and personal failures are briefly set aside as he and an unlikely companion travel to Fairborough and renew old memories. The romantic promise of rediscovered love is intruded upon by modern realities as the drama unfolds.Written by
This comment belongs in "Trivia" but there are no instructions for initiating that segment of the site.
In the film, the reunion involves WW II veterans of the 323rd Bomb Squadron, which actually existed. It was part of the 91st Bomb Group based at Bassingbourn, Cambridgeshire (8th Air Force Station 121) from 1942 to 1945.
The group's emblem was a "Triangle A" on the tail, though the movie shows B-17s from several other groups. The 91st is best known as the organization that flew "The Memphis Belle", which belonged to the 324th Squadron.
