Movies: Beacon Hill Meaningful Movies: On Paper WingsDetails: During World War II, the Japanese military developed a new weapon intended to strike directly at the American continent—the balloon bomb. Thousands of hydrogen-filled balloons were attached to bombs and then launched into the jet stream to drift toward North America. When six civilians found a balloon bomb in southern Oregon (near Bly), the device exploded. They became the only people killed on the continental US as the result of enemy action during World War II. “On Paper Wings” is the story of four Japanese women who worked on the balloon bombs, the families of those killed in Oregon, and the man whose actions brought them all together forty years after World War II and the balloon bomb project.
