After reviewing the 'boneyard' site, it looks like Kingman would be the likely site for the movie footage. No P39s, but they did have the P63 Kingcobra, in addition to the 17s and 24s.

The boneyard was filmed at Ontario Army Airfield in Ontario, California

I have to watch that movie again. Saw it in High School in 1980, and afterwards we had some very frank discussions about vets, and what they go through. The teacher was " a little progressive", and was quite vocal about what was going on with VN vets at that time. He would not talk about his views on the war, but talked about issues like substance abuse, "Combat Fatigue", and what we now term PTSD.

I looked at a document that was for sale at a local antique store;
It was from a commander and was sent to the family of a WWI(that's one)veteran. It was about dealing with the re-introduction of veterans into a family and community. I kick myself for not buying it before the shop went out of business.

Great posts guys! Could not believe the number of missions (58) the B-17 "Round Trip ?" made. Wow! Got to find that movie again.

This post is like following a rabbit down its hole - new turns everywhere! So I googled "Round Trip" and that was one link. Then I saw a link to the Memphis Belle and her eventual restoration at the Air Force museum. Then I saw this - http://www.ww2db.com/ww2file/?p=955

Thanks for the correction FrankD. Ontario does seem more likely, as they had grass! Rob

That's crazy good flying skills - just crazy good.

Take a look at the Canadair CL-415. Equally as amazing as the Russian airplane but there are the benefits of turboprop power over jet power. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHuoXD_VmBs

And then we have the CL-415 putting out a unique sort of fire.
