Bombs Away: Goodbye Guardians of the Great Lakes DVD
Michigan airbases have not only trained pilots since World War I, they have also trained the famous Tuskegee Airmen. It was also from Michigan runways that the longest combat mission in history was launched… striking Iraqi targets from Wurtsmith AFB near Oscoda, Michigan. Bombs Away chronicles airbases at Selfridge, Wurtsmith, Kincheloe and Sawyer using rare film footage and exclusive interviews from the men who flew the historic flights. Includes the final flights of B-52 bombers from Sawyer and Wurtsmith, the building of B-24 Bombers at Willow Run, and behind the scenes commentary from flight crews and mechanics during Desert Storm.
