The Mighty Eighth Stream German Contribute to this page VideoThe Mighty Eighth - Exclusive Teaser Footage (HD) sakura-kaihukudo.com On the night of 19–20 February, the Eighth Air Force put up over 1, Bs and Bs and with over fighters to bomb target in Germany – it caused massive destruction to the German war machine. “The Mighty Eight” had an incredible record of 17 recipients of the Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Crosses and a staggering 11/23/ · Most crew members of the eighth who flew missions on B’s credit their survival to the sheer toughness of the plane. Many planes came back from missions littered with bullet holes or hopelessly damaged. But those same planes returned their crews safely to their English bases. The final cost in lives for the Mighty Eighth was a heavy one. The Boeing B Flying Fortress is a four-engined heavy bomber developed in the s for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC). Competing against Douglas and Martin for a contract to build bombers, the Boeing entry (prototype Model /XB) outperformed both competitors and exceeded the air corps' performance specifications. Although Boeing lost the contract (to the Douglas B Bolo.
It sounds pompous and it impresses nobody but your mother and your 14 pet cats. No I mean it really!!!!!
It never ceases to amaze me how people always make assumptions based on pure guesswork! Bloody amateurs! From a Heavy Bomber Fan based in England!
Sorry nothing has been confirmed. My grandfather was herman philbeck.. Have a documentary about him and his unit…. Really excited to find out about this.
He served onboard a B in the st Bombardment Group, nd Squadron, which was part of the Eight before being transferred to the Twelfth. I am really fortunate to still have my Dad with me.
He was the tail-gunner on the original combat crew aboard the 5 Grand which flew 35 missions in Dad was drafted right out of high school and had the choice of infantry or air corp.
I guess he figured a warm cot and fresh food was better than crawling in the mud. After seeing 14 guys from his Quonset hut go down on his 3rd mission he became more aware that in battle no body is safe.
Damn,by the time they got back after delivering their bombload,their lockers were emptied and their were new crews laying in their beds.
But in my opinion,these guys were really special. I realize that technology is lightyears ahead of those times. LOL I have to tell you,if needed, he would be more than willing to don his uniform and do it all over again.
I love my Dad. My grandfather was fighter pilot of the JG and flew FWs and later Me and flew missions with Galland. IMO, the next one should be set in the Korean War, not WW2.
William E. Barber, who fought in Iwo Jima and earned the Medal of Honor for his actions as one of the Frozen Chosin Few. I dearly want to see the Korean War brought to life.
So much happened in so little time during that war. It would amazing to see. Yes, not many people are aware of just how big of a war Korea really was.
Not only were we on the brink of WW3 but how many people realize that the US went to war against Chinese troops head on in what was virtually full scale conventional war?
The saddest thing is the veterans have been treated with complete apathy and anonymity throughout their lives.
The US lost Vietnam not the fault of the US military whereas at least South Korea is a free country because of the UN troops who fought there. I have much info on his time in England where he flew his raids from including his log book, newspapers articles and photographs of his actual bomb raids.
I;m looking forward to seeing this series. I only Hope Playtone Productions stays true to the facts, The real story of what these brave airman experienced needs to be told.
I know the mental anguish my father went through just before and during every raid he went on. How he was able to stay sane after coming home is nothing short of amazing.
Totally agree. My father was a pilot Decatur Deb with 28 missions. The stories of these guys need to be told.
Teaser looks hokey though. Ya my grandfather was in armys 8th airforce and they wernt supposed to make it past their 3rd flight and they had to do at least 20 missions.
Please make it realistic, A B with an engine out will not keep up in formation. Show more of the combat and less of the personal stories, if just to show how war is not noble or exciting, but death, and destruction, and the change all go thru just to survive.
If prior to reaching the target, they would jettison bombs. After the target, it was possible to stay with the group on 3 engines.
Sorry, there is nothing new at this time. Playtone Productions has the LEWIS AND CLARK production in the works at this time.
Cant wait! Any chance in a filming requirement in the UK for extras with military experience? Please feel free to email me any further information.
The scenes of combat and POW life are extraordinary. Totally recommend it. Hoping this lives up to expectations [ala; Band of Brothers]. But like what was recently mentioned, this footage is 2 years old.
That being said, I am not holding my breath. Is it going to take another 2 years to get it off the ground. Get on with it. BEST war documentary I have seen have seen many …CHOSIN…Korean War …was on Netflix…its on Amazon…was put out a few years ago…Amazing gut wrenching archive.
Every American should watch this at some point in their lives.. My grandfather was a waist gunner in the Bloody Hundredth and spent a couple years as a POW in Germany after his crew had to bail from their plane.
It will be really cool to see the 8th in the spotlight. Mine was Techsgt Dewey Thompson. The book I mentioned talked a lot about it.
I learned a lot. I recently read a novel on Amazon called Hawser that was the best book about the 8th I have come across.
Great story, too. If the teaser is the raid on Kassel they have the aircraft wrong…they are showing B17s — B24s flew that mission. It was about Bs in the Sept raid.
The crew in the unpressurized planes wore oxygen masks above 10, feet. I was wondering if anyone else noticed the missing B After owning Band of Brothers and The Pacific Minie Series on Blueray, I know this will be in my collection.
After serving our great nation in USAF for 23 years; this one will touch me deeply as the great losses suffered just by the 8th Air Force is staggering.
I want to thank HBO for yet another fantastic endeavour. Looking forward to the new miniseries. Will be another interesting aspect of WWII covered by Hanks and Spielberg.
I must admit I was surprised when the announced it would involve a squadron in bomber raids. I would have thought they would have followed the last two miniseries and focused on another major theatre such as North Africa or the Eastern Front but alas in the end they have to sell the series to an American audience and that is much easier to do focusing on perspectives from America in the war.
Still though this will be something new and it will be exciting to see how they pull it off. I hope they keep up the good work from the first two miniseries.
Is that the one where 5 kids were going to meet after the war and only 3 made it. That was a gruesome movie.
Yay, finally!!! Love band of brothers and the pacific. As a current grad student for ww2 history this is a passion. I am really excited about this, having just completed a novel about it.
I researched the hell out of it, spending more than two years of total immersion. My great-uncle was in the Mighty Eighth.
He was the first B pilot to complete all 25 missions over Nazi-occupied France. Hiring a couple of historians should fit their budget imo. Jimmy Stewart flew as a bomber on numerous missions deep into Nazi-occupied Europe, mostly with the th bomb group.
In , he twice received the Distinguished Flying Cross for actions in combat and was awarded the Croix de Guerre. He also received the Air Medal with three oak leaf clusters.
Clark Gable volunteered for service at the age of 40, went to Officer Candidate School, and was trained as a photographer and aerial gunner.
He flew several combat missions over Europe as a photographer with the st and 91 st bomb groups. On one combat mission over GelsenkirchenGermany he was nearly hit when a fire do to flak damaged the airplane.
Flak damage to the nose of a B back from a misson. The greatest enemy after Flak or Enemy fighters was the altitude. Bombers were not pressurized and oxygen masks were required over If your oxygen mask failed or clogged with vomit or blood and failed to be cleared, unconsciousness usually followed after 20 minutes accompanied by brain damage or even death.
At the normal operational altitude of 25, feet, the average temperature fell to 20 to 40 below zero. Electrically heated flight suits were usually worn to keep crew members warm during the 6 to 10 hour missions.
At these cold temperatures exposed flesh became frostbitten very quickly. Exposed hands froze to metal almost immediately when inexperienced gunners instinctively took their gloves off to clear a jammed gun in the heat of aerial combat.
B formation over Regensburg on August 17, And what about the missions they flew? All planes returned safely but this result was the exception and not the rule.
Before long range fighter escorts were included but appeared late in the air war. The most notable of the escorts were the famed P mustangs. One of the most deadly missions was mission number The invasion of Europewas scheduled for late spring the following year and in order for that invasion to be successful the German Luftwaffe had to be neutralized prior to that huge undertaking.
