Storyline

Lt. Wilson, a young, inexperienced fighter pilot, is so eager to get his first kill and fit in with his flying mates that he manages to shoot up Gallagher's plane while chasing an enemy fighter. Gallagher is willing to chalk it up to youthful exuberance and let the matter drop, but Sandy takes it personally and makes Wilson's life miserable. To make up for it, Wilson volunteers for a dangerous mission and ends up saving Gallagher's life at great peril to his own. This makes him an instant hero, especially in Sandy's eyes. It also leaves him craving even more attention, but at what risk. Written by alexk-6

Trivia

There were actually at least three incidents during World War II when a P-51 Mustang pilot landed in an open field in enemy territory to pick up a downed fellow Mustang pilot as Lt Wilson does with Gallagher. However, the cockpit area of a combat-configured P-51 has an armor plate with headrest directly behind the pilot seat and has its radio and a fuel tank behind that; in all cases in these rescue landings, one pilot had to sit in the other's lap for the two of them to take off.
