In 1943, the Allies struggle to get a foothold in Europe. Fighter pilot Benjamin Cassiday, Jr. flies his Republic P-47 Thunderbolt against deadly German planes. The P-47's mighty engine, the 18-cylinder Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp, helps provide Cassiday with the power he needs to defeat the enemy in the skies.
