Even with bizarre ending was still entertaining.
21 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The base is being bothered by a lone fighter which is known to the Navy as Washing Machine Charlie. It seems that Charley is coming around everyday making everyone run to the air-raid shelter but really does little if any damage. Word has got back to the Admiral and he wants a stop to the daily raid. He cancels all leave, which McHale's crew was to start, until Washing Machine Charlie is found or ended.

The crew of PT 73 are upset with the leave cancellation and scheme up a plan where they will produce a wing of a Japanese zero fighter, that just so happens that Gruber has, and say they shot down the plane. It looks like the leave is back on for the 73. That is until McHale learns about the fraud and now they are hunting every island in hopes of finding the plane before the Admiral arrives.

A nice episode that has some kind of action in nearly every scene making for an enjoyable show. Even though the ending was far-fetched the show was still entertaining enough to make for a pleasant watch for the viewer.
