EDIT
The Outsider
AIRED:
Mission to bomb a refinery & fuel storage area at Kasendorf. A pilot from the 53rd Fighter Squadron, Lieutenant Harley Wilson hits Gallagher's plane while trying to shoot an enemy fighter. Wilson is very eager to fit in, he feels like an outsider and hitting the Colonels plane doesn't help. The young pilot has been trying to get a kill for two months. He goes to the Star & Bottle where he is snubbed by Sandy, tries to chat up Agnes the Barmaid but she is too busy, and even tries to ask out Captain Vincent not realizing she is Gallagher's date. He volunteers for the next mission, a photo recon over Kasendorf. On the Photo recon mission, Gallagher blows a jug while flying a P-51 and has to bail out. Wilson disobeys orders, breaks off & lands while being strafed by enemy fighters and saves Gallagher. He is put in for the DFC and becomes a "hero". Later in the Star & Bottle, he is cheered by the group and gets to talk with some Reporters (Harkness, Toley, and Barnes) The Photo Recon shows that the storage tanks are really 2000 yards south For the next mission, General Pritchard promises Gallagher every ship in the wing and all the fighters he can muster. 53rd Fighter Squadron. Wilson really wants to make a name for himself; he breaks off again and gets a kill. Because he broke away, Mikler get shot down.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The P51 flown by Wilson is a late model bubble top P-51D with a silver paint scheme. After he breaks off and goes it alone, his plane his shown to be a P-51B, with the canopy integrated into the fuselage, and a dark paint scheme.

        ME-109's attack the bombers, and as one of the German fighters breaks away it is clearly a Focke Wolfe 190.

        There was also a shot taken over the tail of the bomber of an attacking fighter which pulls up, and I swear that is footage of a Spitfire attacking a German plane.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (3)

      • Gallagher flies as lead pilot. Gallagher's call sign is Ramrod Leader, his plane is Piccadilly Lilly, his co-pilot is a Captain called "Bob " played by Robert Dornan so he is probably Bob Fowler , Flight Engineer is Komansky.

      • Captain Bert Robbins is deputy leader on both missions to Kasendorf, his call sign is Ramrod 2. Pritchard talks with the G-2 at SHAEF HQ Brigadier General Sam Marteen but we do not see or hear the character.

      • The 53rd Fighter includes Major Zack Temple (BirdDog Leader), & Lieutenant's Mikler, Gabriel & Wilson (BirdDog 4)
