Bullet From The Blue11.00 am to 12.00 pm
This remarkable documentary unravels the tragic story of a B17 American bomber that crashed just off Canvey Point in 1944. It tells the heartfelt stories of how local historians Gary Foulger and Alan Jasper became engrossed in uncovering the full story behind this wartime tragedy, after discovering parts of wreckage in the Canvey estuary in the Seventies.
During their many years of research, including reaching out to eye witnesses as well as members of the crew, their emotional involvement intensified. In 1996, Gary finally achieved his mission to get a memorial plaque installed, and the film ends on a message of hope and the importance of giving back.
