Once in a while, an exceptional bomber air crew is forced by circumstances into a dogfight with actual fighters. This is always a terrible mismatch, but sometimes, the result is magic, and they stand Very Tall!
The first on this video is a pilot in a SBD Dauntless dive bomber. he tangled with three Zeros, and you need to watch this Man take a hopelessly outdated bomber aircraft into a close fur ball...and LIVE!
The B17 on this video was the highest decorated air mission in WWII! These were MEN!
The last cut is a Wild Weasel fighter bomber that mixed it up more than once, with Migs. When he landed, he flamed out for lack of fuel, but landed dead stick!
Watch this twice, this is some amazing stuff!
