A young soldier (Robbie Kay) tells them they are in the middle of a war zone. Dodging bullets and bombs the flight will attempt to make it back to modern day, without changing history too much.

The Me 262 did not have its first flight until April 8, 1941 with 12 cylinder reciprocating engines, months after the movie timeframe. The jet engine was not delivered until November 1941.
