Never knew they made a swept-wing B-24 ... that flew knife edge in formation ...
Looks like they addressed engine-out yaw quite well.
Glad most got out. Bet the pilots didn't. just because they had a long way to go before jumping.

Very sorry ALL didn't get out, but that B-24 is certainly not in a position that says, "They had time to escape ..." is it?
Thanks for the info, Kutscha.
