antiaircraft battery, Lou's second and third target. He
lines them up and watches the bombs crunch into the buildings
(quietly to himself)
There you are...
Louie takes a deep breath and takes aim. He fires. The bomb
falls clear and Lou turns the valve to close the bomb bay
Bombs away. Bombardier to pilot,
Pilot to bombardier, roger.

Just like Christmas.
EXT. SUPERMAN 5
Superman turns toward home. Planes behind begin to follow
INT. SUPERMAN 6
Louie watches as a vast cloud of smoke billows upward.
When the smoke clears-- A Zero is flying aggressively right
towards the Superman. Right toward Louie.
Mitchell (above Louie) begins to fire. The Zero fires back.
Louie reacts as bullets pierce the bombardier’s bubble. He
tenses, not sure which way to lean, in the completely exposed
space. Mitchell’s bullets hit the Zero.
Louie grabs a photo taped to the now-broken glass and jams

picture) He grumbles as he starts crawling out of the belly:
Louie crawls out from his position into the center of the
Mac is firing at two Zeros.
Harry is firing at another.
Stanley is firing at a couple more.
Suddenly- CRACK. A bullet hole opens in the bubble just
behind his head. He turns.
A Zero is on his other side bearing in on him at 45 degrees,
Much firing, inside and out. Bullets chink through the metal
of the plane.
Stanley keeps firing.
