Britain at War: The Memphis Belle 1944

“Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.”

-Edward Rickenbacker

Flying means freedom. To fly is to be free.

Airplanes have proven to be very useful. Not only are they a means for transportation, airplanes also became a means of bringing peace to all of us. Airplanes have become our wings to fly and conquer battles in the sky.

Aircrafts are used by soldiers to fight in combat. During World War II, aviation served a vital role. Our pilots along with their aircraft fought in different enemy territories to save our country and people. They have defeated every enemy in the sky and even on land.

As important as it is for birds to have their wings, aircraft are very important to our pilots. Our pilots underwent rigorous training in controlling and maintaining control of their aircraft to make sure that they don’t lose in combat. It took them their aircraft’s majestic glory and their unbelievable flying skills to fight in the sky. In the end, the battle was won and we preserved our freedom.

World War II is one of the most historic events in aviation history. Every aircraft which fought in World War II has its own story to tell, just like The Memphis Belle. To take a close up look on this story, watch this video below.

The Memphis Belle: The Flying Fortress is a documentary film which provides an account of the final mission of the crew of the Memphis Belle. This aircraft became the first U.S. Army Air Forces heavy bomber to complete 25 missions over Europe and return to the United States in May 1943.

Since World War II up to the present, aviation has proven itself to be a strong force to protect our country and people. It is a living testament that man can achieve even the impossible, just to fight for freedom.
