New movie Fly Boys

Do a google search for the movie Fly Boys, currently being filmed. This is the story of the Lafayette Escadrille, and I have seen photos on the net of the replica Nieuport 17's being used, they look quite realistic. I believe it will be released sometime this year. Another must have for any WW1 fan is the 4 VHS tape set " Four Years of Thunder". While not a movie, this is a documentary ade by the History Channel and has actual movie footage from 1914-1918, very interesting for any WW1 modeler and is now out on DVD. The VHS ones may still be available at clearance price. Dave

Didn't they use Nieport 17's at Pearl Harbor, or was that at the Battle of Britain? (smirking)

This is the first I'd heard of this movie, and I think it's great. Thanks for sharing. When I first saw the subject line, I thought it was based on the Bradley book; thank god it's not that!

FWIW There were some stills from this in one of the recent issues of Windsock magazine, including a lineup of Nieuports on the cover.
