Mission of Honor is the story of Hurricane Squadron 303, a group of brave pilots who fought in the skies over England in WW2, not just to keep Great Britain free from the Nazis, but also to keep alive the very idea of their own country, which had existed in its modern form for barely twenty years before it was crushed between the opposing jaws of Germany and Russia. Equipped with the almost-obsolete Hurricane and (with some initial reluctance) given RAF blue uniforms, while they fought, Poland lived.
Sean Barton, editor of Hurricane, was also the editor on Return of the Jedi. See more »
In several scenes in the movie, a German Messerschmidt Bf109 is seen entering into a dive, trying to shake a Hurricane on its tail. The Hurricane dives after the 109, catches up with it, and shoots it down. This is somewhat implausible, since the 109 was much faster than the Hurricane (and the Spitfire) in a dive - diving was pretty much a sure-fire way to escape a British fighter. See more »
Glad the Poles were there
Thank god the Polish fighter pilots were there to help us win the war, don't know if Britain would have survived without the 303 Squadron. They stopped the Nazis invading us!
Its amazing how a handful of pilots turned the war.
