    Hi Nick
    I watched it a few months ago, Based on actual events. When the commander of the crew of a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber is killed in action over a raid over Sicily in 1943, his replacement, a young naive pilot, struggles to be accepted by the plane's already tight-knit Irish American crew, well worth the watch mate.
    Regards

    Alot of mixed reviews online, mostly from the authenticity brigade. Apparantly no original aircraft were used in the movie, everything is CGI.

    Still i'll look for it online and watch it on my 'big screen', (living room wall through my projector) one night when the missus is out!

    It is currently on youtube in full in the link below. The film in my opinion was hampered by its B grade acting, set design and its necessity to be shot completely on a green screen. The film although having a larger budget than the other independent films such as Brest Fortress and 9 Рота failed in its historical accuracy in relations to the "true story". I would agree with most reviews of 4-5 out of 10. Worth a watch if you are board.
