12th Air Force B-17 Flying Fortress Group filmed in North Africa during December 1942

From airboyd.tv 
"...More silent film footage, so I added period music to it as it's a long clip. All I've been able to figure out is that the 97th and 301st bomber groups, were moved from the Eighth Air Force in England to the Twelfth Air Force in North Africa. Feel free to comment the planes, places etc...I think it's Tunisia..."

A single click to watch here, two clicks will take you to airboyd.tv. I have included some low-res screen shots to give you a flavour of the clip...
