"Memphis Belle" B-Roll Film
      06/23/17 10:19 PM

The link will take you to OneDrive and about 12 minutes of B-roll film for William Wyler's epic documentary "Memphis Belle." No distracting music or voice-over, just the reality of B-17 ops as they happened.

One thing I only recently even heard of, and at about 1:12 there proof, that many radio operators stood up with at least their heads sticking out of the open radio compartment overhead opening! I figured the wind blast would have been too much, but at least at takeoff speeds, that's visually disproven.
