  • A new pilot, 1st Lieutenant Joshua Melton McGraw, who is an old friend of Gallagher's arrives with a chip on his shoulder and buzzes the field. The bombers arrive from the current mission and the lead plane crashes and explodes killing the lead pilot Captain Newman. When Gallagher asks McGraw about the buzzing he says he had radio trouble, and Gallagher chews him out. He asks Josh how he wangled a transfer into the 918, He says he asked his father, a General to work on Gallagher's father and his fiancĂ© (Britt's daughter, Martha) to work on General Britt. McGraw is angered to find out that Gallagher is going break up his crew for a couple of runs, standard procedure, he is going fly copilot for Gallagher. While at Wing Headquarters to visit General Britt he checks out the plans for tomorrow's bomb raid. On the bombing mission the Group is assigned to bomb the 3rd bridge , while the group goes after the regular target, McGraw peels off and bombs the 4th bridge. He claims it was equipment error and Gallagher lets him off. The next day on a check out flight, McGraw shoots down "Bed Check Charlie". Back on the ground Gallagher forces McGraw to admit that he lied about the radio. He tells him that he could be an excellent lead pilot if he got the chip off his shoulder. Given one more chance by Britt & Gallagher, McGraw uses his damaged plane to hit the target tunnel He is MIA.moreless
