Germans are flying RAF aircraft
26 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode a branch of the Luftwaffe is training in British RAF planes in a mission to sabotage the Allies with their own planes. And it just so happens that the fliers are stationed at Stalag 13 while undergoing training with the planes.

Hogan knows the problems that this will cause the Allies so he has a mission also- to destroy all the RAF planes. But it will not be an easy task as the planes are heavily guarded and General Burkhalter is on hand to assist in any need. Hogan is going to have to have some help from the underground in order strike back at the Germans.

This is a straight on story that well written and well performed. There was also some funny lines in the script with Klink and Burkhalter always having an interesting and humorous discussion. One notable thing about the show was the absents of Richard Dawson. Not sure the reason but it would have made a tighter script if the British officer was present when the Germans were flying British planes. However, the episode was still entertaining and made for an good watch.
