That's a nice shot, Blake! A few years ago, author Adam Makos wrote a book titled "Devotion." "Devotion tells the inspirational story of the U.S. Navy’s most famous aviator duo, Lieutenant Tom Hudner and Ensign Jesse Brown," (From the book overview on Amazon.) I read the book and if the movie you mention is about that story, then it should be a GREAT movie! I recommend the book, and I will be looking forward to the movie.

Another excellent aviation related book by Adam Makos is "A Higher Call." Again from Amazon:

"December, 1943 A badly damaged American bomber struggles to fly over wartime Germany. At the controls is twenty-one-year-old Second Lieutenant Charlie Brown. Half his crew lay wounded or dead on this, their first mission. Suddenly, a Messerschmitt fighter pulls up on the bomber's tail. The pilot is German ace Franz Stigler--and he can destroy the young American crew with the squeeze of a trigger... What happened next would defy imagination and later be called "the most incredible encounter between enemies in World War II.""

It is an amazing story and also worthy of being a movie. Well done, Blake!
