Episode Summary

EDIT
Big Brother
AIRED:
The 918 lands at Mogador in North Africa to refuel and re-arm. They are on a mission to prove to the Germans American bombers can come from anywhere. The goal is to have the Germans pull their fighters back to the homeland. Gallagher's plane lands 21 hours late after his stopover in Yugoslavia. The senior officer is Lieutenant Col. Preston "Pres" Gallagher (Joe Gallagher's older brother). Pres explains that he has a mixed unit of Americans, British & Australians and he has been barely holding on but "Infantry holds, that's what they do". Now that Gallagher has landed safely Pres decides to pull out. Pres takes Gallagher's gas, and sends Captain Strader to blow up the 918th's planes fights. An exhausted Pres collapses and is hospitalized. Major Dutton takes command of ground forces and orders Master Sergeant Orland to prepare to move out. Gallagher radios for gas and the incoming plane is shot down. Pres recovers and decides to fight on. Col. Gallagher sends Lieutenant Col. Bailey with 3 B-17's to refuel, rearm with a mixed load, and orders to return and bomb the approaching Nazi column. If the Nazi win he is to carry out the original mission and return to England. If the Americans win then he should land and then entire 918 will carry out the mission and return.moreless
