The Second Air Division began operations in England with the arrival of the 93rd Bomb Group in 1942. Soon more B-24 bomb groups arrived as the Second Air Division began to establish its credentials at Ploesti and in the air war across German-held Europe. This documentary traces the story of the fourteen Liberator bomb groups in the Second Air Division. During the war the Liberators made their mark upon history, and today the victory won in the skies over Europe remains a significant part of the legacy left behind by the men of the Second Air Division.

Personal interviews, newly discovered photographs and archival footage tell the story of the Liberators and the men who flew them. A unique look back at life on their bases, their British neighbors, and the mission history of the Second Air Division in World War II.
