Storyline

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.

Trivia

As Jan is discussing his first flight with Kent he mentions a few problems he experienced. One was, "throttle working in reverse." In British aircraft the throttle is pushed forward to increase engine speed, for Polish aircraft that Jan and the others flew it was pull back to increase engine speed. In the process of landing, just before the aircraft touches down, the throttle is to be quickly reduced to idle. Problems arise if the pilot forgets that his throttle is "working in reverse" especially with powerful engines as in the Hurricane. See more »

Goofs

Jan Zumbach had Swiss nationality and did not have to return to Poland at the end of the war. He would surely have mentioned this. And did not in fact leave, and later served as a mercenary in African wars. See more »

User Reviews

 
Well intentioned, poorly executed
4 February 2019 | by electrocution_caSee all my reviews

As mentioned elsewhere, the Poles deserve better than this - many of the CGI kills were highly improbable - tailplanes don't just blow up - there's no fuel down there.

That said, it is worth a watch. A better film in this genre is Dark Blue World, but it revolves around Czech pilots with real spitfires.....
