Wings to Victory was a 1940 radio show aired during World War II, which was created in order to honour and give respect to each and every brave member of the Air Force. All of the stories featured were based on combat reports, although the names and the character itself remained fictional. Throughout the series’ run, they made it look like that each story is based from the experience of every member. A good example of this is the story of Lt. Roddy Johns Howard Duff, who always worries about hitting innocent animals while he’s targeting the enemies. After three years, the show had its end with a total of 14 episodes in collection.
