This film was produced by Boeing Aircraft & the Army Air Force during World War 2 to train Boeing B-17 "Flying Fortress" pilots. The pilot, played by veteran actor Arthur Kennedy ("Lawrence of Arabia"), takes a rookie through takeoff, flight characteristics and procedures and landing. An entertaining animation shows the importance of proper attitude in the B-17 during takeoff, and once again, you'll see a hands on demonstration of the proper use of all instruments and control systems during the flight.
