War is declared and Britain must take action against Nazi Germany if Europe is going to be saved from its ruthless clutches. Determined to beat the enemy Flt. Office Earl Kirk, a young South African pilot, volunteers his services to the Royal Air Force, sacrificing his family, his future and himself in the fight against evil. Whilst in combat, surrounded by bombers and under relentless attack, Kirk must make the decision that could change his and his crew's life forever. Plummeting through the air, they are forced to leave the safety of their aircraft and parachute directly into Nazi occupied land. Following a South African Pilot, Captain Earl Kirk, who volunteered to fight for the Royal Air Force during the height of Air Marshal Harris' bombing campaign over Nazi Germany, we are thrust into an action packed story of Kirk and his men's fight for survival when their bomber is shot down over Germany. Battling to get home to complete their mission and see their loved ones, this RAF crew ... Written by
The British RAF did in fact operate the American-built Consolidated B-24 Liberator. They were ordered in 1940 but were only operational with the RAF from 1941. The RAF used the Mark II Liberator primarily in Coastal Command and Bomber Command (as depicted in this film), but also for carrying heavy cargo. Most of the aircraft were based in Britain and operated over Northern and Western Europe, but they also saw service in North Africa and the Middle East. See more »
Just before the belly landing at about 50:00, the inside starboard engine is not running. Several seconds later in subsequent shots, all engines are running. See more »
I just LOVE WW2 flying movies. This has to be the worse I've ever seen. Never mind the wrong salutes and wrong uniforms. The rank of Lieutenant has NEVER existed in the RAF (or RCAF - same structure). Pilot Officer, Flying Officer, Flight Lieutenant and so on. If memory serves, this structure was established in 1919! Prior to 1919 the RAF was the RFC.
The VW Kubelwagen the SS men were driving had a RIGHT hand drive. In Germany, right hand drive vehicles have NEVER been in use. Not even in WW2.
The list of errors goes on and on and on...
Too much crap, not enough believable action!!! Compared to such greats as Reach For The Skies, or The Battle Of Britain, this REALLY sucks!!!
