Michigan has been home to military installations since 1683; housing French troops, English soldiers and eventually some of the first aircraft fighters ever built. These runways have not only trained the famous Tuskegee Airmen, but also launched the longest combat mission ever... striking Iraqi targets from halfway around the world! Featuring profiles of Selfridge ANGB-Wurtsmith AFB -Kincheloe AFB-Sawyer AFB Join pilot/historian Ric Mixter as he not only chronicles the unique aviation history of four Michigan airbases, but also flies the final B-52 flights from Wurtsmith and KI Sawyer. Includes rare TV interviews with air crews, mechanics, World War II pilots, and a profile of Willow Run; the world's largest factory producing B-24 Liberator bombers during World War II.
