Indiana Jones transfers from the Belgian army to the French intelligence service, where his first assignment is as a reconnaissance photographer for the 124th Squadron, a group of volunteer American pilots in the French army. When his plane is shot down, Indy encounters the infamous "Red Baron" - Manfred von Richthofen. After a daring escape, Indy is parachuted back into Germany on a mission to convince aircraft designer Anthony Fokker to defect to France, and he discovers a new German superweapon - a new airplane intended to bring the war overseas.

First off, sound man Ben Burtt proves he can direct here. Attack of the Hawkmen is one of the most fun Young Indy episodes. As a bonus, if you are a Lucas fan, you may spot Threepio Anthony Daniels with a French accent in one scene, as Francois, where Indy is briefed in a big hurry by a couple of scientist types. I am surprised his credit is not more prominently featured here on the net. You have to click MORE to get the full credit list. It's just a cameo, but refreshing for those of us baffled how Star Wars actors can be so seldom used.
