An entertaining episode.
7 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode begins when the manager of a plant, Hans Spear (played by the lovable Mayberry drunk Hal Smith) needs some extra security at his plant that has been rework to make cannons. And before the new guards arrive at the plant, Spear talks Klink into letting him have a few guards.

Of course Hogan gets wind of the plant and sends a message to England requesting a bombing run. But at this present time the Allies are unable to place the bombing of the schedule and asks Hogan to handle it himself.

Sure enough the gang finds a way into the plant and begins the task of sabotage. But a wrench is thrown into the plan when Newkirk's alias gets drafted into the German Army.

Another chance for us to leave the prison camp and enjoy the hijinks of the gang. And with Schultz being one of the security guards at the plant, it will not be long before we hear the words 'I see nothing'. Another nice watch.
