I'm with ccthemovieman on this one....
22 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Unlike the usual half hour episode, this one ran in a one hour time slot. Considering how unusual it is, you'd expect it to be great. Well, it ain't!! Ccthemovieman's review was right on target when it said "Considering the length and cast, it's disappointing". So, with Kevin Costner and Keiffer Sutherland and a nice WWII B-17 bomber set, the show STILL isn't very good. However, this can be said about MANY of the "Amazing Stories" shows.

A bomber crew is on their final mission. However, the belly gunner is in trouble after he shoots down an attacking Me-101 German fighter--the debris becomes lodged in the plan and traps the guy. He cannot bail out and the wheels are damaged--and a belly landing will certainly kill him. Their way out of this predicament is just dumb--so dumb that it completely ruin a good looking and well acted episode. Sad, really.
