Memphis Belle, a B-17 Flying Fortress and her crew are set to complete 25 missions, a prerequisite for the crew to complete their tour of duty. Along with the rest of the squadron, Belle is given the task of attacking a Focke Wulf 190 manufacturing plant in Bremen, Germany. Though initially escorted by P-51’s, the short-range fighters have to eventually withdraw, leaving the vulnerable bombers to fend for themselves to the target and back. The success of Belle carries a lot of significance in that she would be the first in the Eighth Air Force to complete her tour. Army Publicist Lieutenant Colonel Bruce Derringer intends on using Belle’s fame accrued from her record to sell vital war bonds.

Over Germany, Belle takes over as flight lead when the formation begins to take losses from flak and enemy planes. A smoke screen initially obscures the target, though on the second pass the formation successfully drops their payload on the now visible area. Returning home, the formation is continuously harassed by German planes. Radioman SSgt. Danny Daly is severely wounded, and damage causes a fire in one of the engines which Captain Dearborn is forced to extinguish by diving the plane, nearly risking the aircraft in the process.
