pressure from going under moved whatever he was stuck under. (although this isn't what happens truly and in the book) when this actually happened, in the book and in real life Louie's USC ring was stuck to something but he managed to loosen it and then swam up.
no it had engine trouble. the plane they were in was called the Green hornet and it was restricted to recon use because it took one hell of a beating in a previous mission and when they were at see the plane had a malfunction and crashed.
Darn it...now I have to rent/buy the movie. I know the back story of this man and what he went on to be later in life. I highly doubt there are any young people in this day and age who could match this generation in character and grit.
Read the book! He actually does black out! It’s pretty wild what actually happened and how much more suspenseful the book is due to its detail. The film cuts out some really gnarly stuff that the book contains and makes it very hard to put down till you finish it. If you love the movie trust me you will love the book as well and probably even more.
He doesn’t black out. He gives up until his body springs back into action. Also when Louie was not in the war he went in pools training his lungs, somtimes he stayed in there for so long he passed out and other people needed to get him. But the people who rescued him only realised he was trying to expand his lung capacity. So thats why he can hold his breath so long also because he is an Olympic runner and runners need a good respiratory system.
B Vids Stop spreading bs, the plane could NOT take off with bomb load for unknown reasons to even them. So they had it for supply runs and search missions. It was a malfunctioning plane from the beginning it wasn’t worn out. They even had parts stripped out to use in other b24s. They ended up naming it Ruptured duck
They crashed because number 1 engine cuts out, Cuppernell calls the engineer to the cockpit to feather the engine AKA restart it but the engineer accidentally restarts engine 2 which causes the planes to spin into the ocean because only the right wing has both engines active while the left wing has no engines working, which makes it uneven, which then causes the plane to spin into the ocean leaving thousands of dubree.
FreeRangeRayquaza late comment here but the reason why the plane went down was because the #1 engine cut out and they ordered the flight engineer to the cockpit. While he was feathering the prop. he accidentally cut the mixture to the #2 engine shutting it down on accident sealing their fate. The b-24 could’ve ran on 3 engines but due to the flight engineers mistake, the plane was doomed and probably couldn’t of restart it in time.
Well one engine on the left wing (No, this is not a War Thunder joke) failed for some reason, but since those planes can fly on 3 engines, they kept flying to do their mission. Then, another engine on the plane failed, also on the left wing. I know it was already a junked up plane that should've been retired, but they also might have crashed because of the thrust being unbalanced. But them again, it was a broken plane...
Ooooh, looks like some is gonna assume that youtube commenters are all people that like seeing water sucking the life out of people. This comment was totally unnecessary. Also, most people won't make fun of a true story.
