The B-17s display checkered tails of the 385th Bombardment Group, stationed at RAF Great Ashfield, England. There is some camera movement that soon focuses on bombs away view and bombs falling from the B-17s. Some incendiary bombs are seen streaming white smoke (possibly M-17 or M-19 incendiaries). Numerous flames erupt simultaneously as clusters of indendiary bombs ignite on contact with the ground. Camera rotates around during filming as the ball turret rotates.
