Hardwick Aerodrome 104: Home of the 93rd Bomb Group / 8 minutes
The inspiration for this 8 minute piece came from an article written in the 93rd's very own newsletter - The Ball Of Fire Quarterly Express. A 93rd BG veteran by the name of Ed Reilly wrote an excellent account of his visit back to Hardwick in 1975. Hardwick during the war was not only a small city supporting thousands of U.S. Army Air Corps personnel but a place that conducted strategic bombing campaings over Germany and other targets. The documentary will follow 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation 93rd Bomb Group members on a reunion to England honoring the veterans that served there. The film will also venture onto the current day airbase with a historian and local guide exploring what is left. The history from WWII is fading fast along with the greatest generation.
