Default Flight of old 666

A remarkable flight by a B17 on WWII. Two Medals of Honor were awarded. The rest of the flight crew were awarded the Distinguished Fllying Cross.

Wasn't that the story of a misfit crew that had no plane and recued one from the boneyard. They took all the missions no other crews wanted. Seems I remember something about a photo recon mission they got shot up real bad.
