Near the first of the film, pilots execute a turn and sway outwardly, as if forces would pull one from the seat in that direction. Turns in an aircraft are taught to use enough rudder to offset centrifugal force, hence a "coordinated turn" would merely push the pilots straight down in their seat, and they would not sway to the side. This can be maintained, even on instruments to: "center the ball" by using rudder to the side that the ball is out of the index, as if "pushing it there" by using the foot that is on the same side.

If you like flying movies or World War II movies, I don't think you can go wrong with Fortress.
The movie is about the crew of a B-17 Flying Fortress flying out of North Africa during World War II, during a time of very high casualties. It centered on the crew of one plane, as they fought and as many of them died.
It was generally quite good. On the up side, they had a credible, real story and a pretty good set of actors. The special effects were generally pretty good. They didn't make any historical errors I spotted either.
It wasn't perfect. Some parts were predictable and there were lapses in special effects. But it was good and I definitely enjoyed it. Give it a try and I think you'll enjoy it too.
