Storyline

Something nefarious is afoot in the 918th. Stricken by a series of mechanical mishaps that have already cost several planes, Col. Gallagher's group is tasked with ferrying a beautiful spy to a parachute drop over Nazi-occupied Poland. Once again, the bomber assigned the mission is struck by gremlins that bring her down with the loss of a popular pilot and co-pilot, but the spy survives for another try. With this latest disaster, tensions between the air crews and ground crews explode into mayhem. But evidence starts to appear that indicates the miscues may not be accidental, and suspicion runs rampant through the base, endangering the spy's mission and the confidence of the troops.

Spies and counterspies at the 918th
20 December 2011 | by (The 13th Colony) – See all my reviews

This one was probably written to quench the audience thirst during the first James Bond/espionage craze of the mid 60s. It plays more like an episode of 'I Spy' or even 'The Man From UNCLE' than it does a World War II bomber show. (there's a scene where the bad guys where special rings which would be right out of the UNCLE show). There are spies - saboteurs really - causing maintenance problems for Gallagher's aircraft. B-17s are suffering mechanical failures, bombers are falling out of the sky and targets are not being struck. What to do? Well Bomber Command has got to ferret out the Reich's sympathizers at Archbury. This one has enough twists and turns to satisfy the thriller thirst in any fan, and comes across as a good entry in the series, with Gallagher sort of going off and letting people know what he thinks about spy games vs. his duty to pound the Reich in the process. Again, solid performances all around - especially from J.D. Cannon, a Quinn Martin favorite. Gia Scala is both striking in looks and her acting in this one. She doesn't get a chance to shine - being she basically has no lines - in "The Guns of Navarone," but she really had the most lovely of voices and her ability to act off others with facial expressions surprised me. Tragic that her life was blighted and she ended up passing away a few years after this episode was filmed. She would have been a great talent for stage and film.
