Episode Summary

EDIT
Twenty-Fifth Mission
AIRED:
After completing On his 25th mission, Major Tom Parsons is going home. At Wing HQ General Britt is chewing out his Group Commander (Fred, Gallagher & ?). Sveringen is the production centre for the new ME-262 rocket powered fighter. They have tried to bomb several times and failed. Gallagher suggests nighttime precision bombing. Britt says the RAF have tried and failed. Gallagher suggests sending in a pathfinder to mark the target by dropping incendiaries on either side. Gallagher picks Parsons to fly the pathfinder mission; he refuses as he has completed his tour. At the officers club Parsons meets his former co-pilot Captain Cowley who has just got out of the hospital. Cowley asks about Parsons girl, Naomi. Is he taking her back to the States with him? Parsons is non-committal. Gallagher orders Cowley to fly the pathfinder mission and gets Parsons to train him. General Britt has been reviewing Parsons orders to rotate back the States; he finds that Parsons has only flown milk runs, every time there is a deep penetration mission he aborts. Britt is angry and finds that Parsons has comes up short on one of his missions, as the distance was to short to qualify. He needs to fly one more mission. The next mission is a diversion run over the Seine. Thinking the Major's luck has run out, all the gunners carry extra ammunition in addition to the full bomb load. Parson's has to abort. Not realizing why his plane blew an engine, back on the ground, an angry Parsons tries to slug his crew chief but slugs his bombardier instead.moreless
