They counted almost 200 holes in the aircraft, "Old 666". The pilot and nose gunner were awarded the Medal of Honor.
last two lines
those bomber pilots in the pacific were hatin' life since the range needed for those missions didn't allow for much fighter escort
This makes me want to play Battlestations Midway.
holy living balls.

The most bad ass aircrew to have ever existed. You really have to read the wiki entry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_666
'Cursed' plane that gets shot to bits every mission it flies? Hell, give it to us. We'll fix it up, upgrade the guns and put six more on it, on top of the extra we're going to keep inside in case one jams. Those pussies wont take 'suicidal' mapping mission? Sure, we'll do it, the boys on the ground need to know what's down there.
And then they walk off, giant balls of steel clanging.

Son, today, you live or die on-board a flying boat.
We have provided you with a gun and bullets.
There are people out there who will try and kill you.
That guy with the mustache is 80+ years old, and he could still kick the shit out of every single user of this website.

According to Wiki, the Battleplane is an idea as old as the idea for fighters. Fighters did the job cheaper so battleplanes dropped most of their guns and evolved into the first heavy bombers. Unfortunately, the YB-40 gunship idea never really caught on in WW2 because its armor made it really slow.
Thats a shame because WW2 could have had lots of Boss Fights with some giant 8-engined flying dreadnought vs 20 fighters.

I have no words...just, fucking hardcore.
honestly the Japanese were pretty weak in WW2 (except in terms of dying and willingness to die)
