8 August 1943 : Flight Officer Maude Garrett is ordered to a special mission with a flight between New-Zealand and the Samoa Islands. This flight will be all but quiet ... mainly due to a gremlin.
Note: This film utilises a significant quantity of Computer Generated Images (CGI). Aircraft portrayed in this film may not be entirely accurate and have been identified as closely as possible to real aircraft.
Christened The Fool's Errand a Boeing B-17F Flying Fortress serial 41-2686 (wrong serial as from a batch for Douglas A-20B-DL Havoc !). As the first flight of a B-17G occured in mid August 1943 so it's just a late B-17F but not a 1941 airframe as suggested by the false serial !
