The story of America’s first warplane

You’re invited to a special screening of the documentary, Legends of the Sky: The Liberty Plane in Bowling Green on Saturday, November 5.

When the United States first entered World War I, its Army Air Service lacked a combat-ready aircraft – a liability that prompted a global search to identify an aircraft suitable for mass production at home and combat operations abroad. The aircraft that won out was the single-engine DH-4, dubbed the “Liberty Plane.”

Legends of the Sky: The Liberty Plane, a documentary from Bowling Green filmmakers Dorian and Elaine Walker, tells the story behind the DH-4 as well as the heroic pilots who proved the plane’s worth on the battlefield and, later, back home with the nascent U.S. air mail.
