The Mighty Eighth is a 10-part mini-series by Spielberg and Hanks. It’s the third part of their trilogy which includes Band of Brothers and Pacific. We actually aren’t too sure when the name change happened but, MASTERS OF THE AIR, the WWII companion piece to BAND OF BROTHERS and THE PACIFIC, now has the official title of THE MIGHTY EIGHTH, in our opinion you couldn’t have a better title – the Eighth Air Force is legendary. The new series will feature the daylight bomber raids by American forces over Nazi Germany

The power-house producers previously had success with Band of Brothers in 2001 and The Pacific in 2010. The source material this time around will be Donald L. Miller’s non-fiction book Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the War Against Nazi Germany. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series "will explore the aerial wars through the eyes of the enlisted men of the Eighth Airforce, known as the men of the Mighty Eighth

The High & Mighty's debut album for Rawkus, Home Field Advantage (1999), put the duo on the hip-hop map in a big way. At the time, Rawkus was arguably the most esteemed label in underground hip-hop, mostly because of the critical success releases such as Mos Def and Talib Kweli's Black Star had garnered for the New York label. The High & Mighty thus became an overnight sensation with the release of Home Field Advantage, thanks to the affiliation. However, the affiliation ended there
The Mighty Eighth museum is about 5 minutes from my house. Somedays they have actual M8th survivors giving tours. I'll keep names out of this public post. I haven't heard any new info since. No contact with any 8th Air Force associations, there are 48 (give or take 1 or 2) B-17's in the world and less than 10 airworthy. None of the owners have had contact with movie companies (you'd imagine 1 real Fortress would be used in filming).
I hope they didnt cancel it or something since Band of Brothers and The Pacific were so amazing. Any mid-air collision like the one above would be catastrophic for both planes. The structural strength of aircraft in general aren't designed to handle force beyond the normal physics of flight. The full force and weight of a bomber slamming against another wouldn't leave much of either plane in one piece.
