Movies Air Force (Warner 1943, John Garfield, Gig Young) Published 1 month ago on January 13, 2019 The story of the crew manning a B-17 Flying Fortress in action throughout the Pacific is tailor-made for director Hawks, the undisputed master of men-under-pressure adventures. Stirring aerial battle scenes and believable dialogue lift this far above the average WWII propaganda vehicle. A real B-17 bomber was used for many of the shots in Air Force. It later returned to active duty in the Pacific and was lost at sea with the entire crew. The interior shots for Air Force were filmed within an elaborate replica of the airplane.
