Storyline

While preparing for a top priority mission, Gen. Savage replaces a sick crewman with a hotshot gunner, only to discover too late that the man has a bad reputation as well as a negative attitude. Joe Waller is a washed-out pilot trainee who takes out his resentment on his fellow crew members. The resulting friction threatens the integrity of the crew, even before Waller is forced to replace the fatally wounded bombardier, making him the most important man in the entire mission.

Trivia

Actor Chris Robinson appears here as Lt. Gunther, later he would join the show as Co-Star 'Sgt.Sandy Komansky' for the final 2 Seasons. See more »

Goofs

When the crew bails out of the plane, each crewman briefly pauses in the doorway before jumping out. A B-17 has a cruising speed of 170 mph, so there should be a substantial wind. Instead, we see an occasional breeze. This scene was apparently filmed with the actors/stuntmen jumping from a stationary aircraft on the ground. See more »
