The 'Iron Eagle' may fly again.
5 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Poor Klink is talking to an old Luftwaffe buddy about the days when he was in the air flying planes. It seemed that Klink use to fly but due to failing a medical examination was taking out of the air and placed on a desk job. Klink is telling about when he was called 'Iron Eagle' and wishes he could be back in the air. Well it just so happens that the Luftwaffe is looking for anyone that can fly to stick in the air on the Russian front and Klink has unwittingly volunteered.

With a new Commandant already placed in the position, Hogan's gang must come up with a plan where General Burkhalter will reinstate Klink. So they plan a little escape to prove how valuable Klink was in heading the Stalag and hopefully keep the 'Iron Eagle' out of the air.

A fine episode that produced many a good laughs. Between listening to Klink dig himself a hole about wanting to fly- to Burkhalter hear about the wild-blue-yonder, this show kept the audience entertained the entire time.
