Periscope Film/ Youtube
This film features raw combat footage taken from the Eighth Air Force, 91st Bombing Group which conducted 340 bombing missions over Europe. It was filmed by the photographic reconnaissance units. The video also included bits from the 1944 documentary film The Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress which was directed by Major William Wyler.
The 91st Bomb Group was a heavy bombardment group that operated B-17 Flying Fortress aircraft. They were informally known as “The Ragged Irregulars” or as “Wray’s Ragged Irregulars”. They were inactivated at the end of World War II but were brought back a few years later in 1947.
