Onboard there are nine crew members: Luke Sinclair, the ambitious second driver; Danny Daly, the Irish-American radio operator full of ideals; Val Koslowski, the bomber; Phil Rosenthal, the navigator and a drink lover; the engineer-gunner Virgil; Jack Bocci, Eugene McVey, Clay Busby and Richard "Rascal" Morre, the four gunners.
