Memphis Belle-like film with cartoony ending

Live action film about a WWII American bomber (B17?) on a raid from the UK to Germany.
The plane and crew get badly shot up. When trying to land the only one of the main wheels will lower. All seems lost. A great film up to that point. Magically a  'disney cartoon' style second wheel suddenly appears and the plane lands safely.

Any chance it is "The Thousand Plane Raid"?
It's the right genre and there is a problem with the landing gear, but no cartoony wheel - so no.
I know it sounds odd but my dad remembers it too!
