"So there I was, in the ball turret of a B-24, surrounded by rednecks..."

I bet that guy triple-checked the landing gear before missions.

What was the movie where the plane (with a ball turret underneath) was coming with no, or not enough landing gear, with a guy trapped in the ball turret and one of the guys drew a cartoon landing gear and the plane landed on cartoon landing gear? I thought it was Memphis Belle, but, apparently I am wrong about that.

Did I imagine that? If I did, DIBS! on the storyline.

I remember that episode of Amazing Stories and remember Steven Spielberg directing it, but didn't realize there were so many stars in it.

Or kind of a nice metaphor?

So it's been 20 years or so since I've seen it.

Was it the gunner or another crew member who got out their sketchbook and drew the cartoon wheel on the plane?

In any event, it was a cunning service member who saved the day. Not some supernatural outside force.

Spoiler,


















The belly gunner is a cartoonist and when he draws in the landing gear, it magically appears to save him. Here's a review with the full plot
