Episode Summary

EDIT
We're Not Coming Back
AIRED:

American bomber command is using the 918th to test a new strategy to help with daylight bombing -- The Shuttle Raid. The idea is simple instead of a round trip turn the trip into a triangle with two bomb runs per trip. The 918 is to bomb 200 miles into Germany (Wellhausen), turn South to North Africa, refuel and reload, and on the way back to England bomb a German held area in France. Command wants to force the German air command to spread themselves too thin to cover all of their important targets.

The new plan takes the German high command by surprise and only one training group attacks the 918 on its way to North Africa. Over Wellhausen, Oberst Falkenstein leads this training group to attack the formation. Gallagher's plane is hit and forced to land in Yugoslavia. Captain Lowell is wounded. Partisans help them, Lowell dies. Mara falls for Gallagher. Yellich wants Gallagher to take Mara with him. She stays. As the Germans close in Gallagher takes off.
