The Final Mission
AThe Final Mission pilot of a B-24 Liberator recalls his military career, including his stateside pilot training and the perilous missions he flew over Nazi occupied Europe from November 1943 through his final mission on D-Day, June 6, 1944. The 87-year old veteran is clear-headed, unpretentious and straightforward and typical of his generation. The film is narrated only to complement this personal story and includes a multitude of relevant historical film footages and magnificently clear still photos – all extensively researched and verified at the National Archives and Records Administration in College Park, MD. Many photos place the pilot himself on site in England and lend authenticity to the story. These last mentioned photos were made available to me by the pilot’s extensive family collection.
