"No Bullets Fly" as written by Joakim Broden, Paer Sundstroem and Kenny Lars Kaengstroem....
From down below one enemy’s spotted
So hurry up, rearm and refuel
But through the bomber's damaged air frame
See wounded men scattered and burned

Look to the right and then look again
And see the enemy in the eye
No bullets fly, spared by his mercy
Escorted out, out of harm’s way

Fly, fighting fair
It’s the code of the air
Brothers, heroes, foes

Killing machine, thunder in the sky
B-17, flying home
Killing machine
Said goodbye to the cross he deserved

He risked his life two times that day
To save an unknown enemy
Escort to safety, out of the killzone
A short salute, then departed

Fly, fighting fair
It's the code of the air
Brothers, heroes, foes

Killing machine, thunder in the sky
B-17, flying home
Killing machine
Said goodbye to the cross he deserved

(Oh oh oh)

Fly, fighting fair
It's the code of the air
Brothers, heroes, foes

Killing machine, thunder in the sky
B-17, flying home
Killing machine
Said goodbye to the cross he deserved

    Song MeaningThe song is about the incident between Franz Stigler and Charles Brown. Charles, the pilot of a B-17 Flying Fortress received heavy damage and several of his crew was wounded. As the B-17 was limping back, attempting to reach the safety of England, Franz, after his Me 109 was restocked and refueled had initially been ordered to bring the B-17 down. When we reached within striking distance, Franz noticed the casualties involved and the extensive damage to the bomber. Remembering something he was told as a recruit, he felt it would be dishonorable to shoot the bomber down, as it reminded him akin to a man with his parachute deployed.
