Key factors such as P-51 Mustang escort timing, plus navigation and rescue support enroute and return are covered. Some exceptional shots include a B-29 ditching off the beach, Japanese Tony's crisscrossing in the bomber formation, and much air to air and air to ground film from the Mustangs. One of the best B-29 color historical films ever produced.
