Published on Sep 6, 2012  “Gable flew bombing missions with the 351st until he was ordered to stop by “the Brass.” He felt he had to share the danger and experience what these B-17 crews were going through to make an honest film. I digitally color corrected. a copy of this film from the National Archives. Zeno, Zeno’s Warbird Video Drive-  I copied this from uTube.
