633 Squadron

Synopsis: 633 Squadron has enjoyed an unqualified string of successes. Their luck changes when they are assigned to bomb a German rocket fuel plant, in Norway which is guarded by heavy anti-aircraft defences, and the plant is considered bomb-proof. Their nearly impossible mission is further complicated by a German air raid, the difficult approach to the target and the capture and torture of the underground leader who is assisting the squadron.
Genre: Drama, War

At an exact hour on M-Day,

the day of our mission...

Bergman and his men

will neutralize the flak posts.

If all goes well...

you should have

a clear run up the fjord.

If all goes well.

The factory will be

shipping fuel in 18 days.

Your special bombs

will be ready in 17.

Today is "M" minus 17.

Your orders are to obliterate

the target at whatever cost.

Any questions?

Lieutenant Bergman will be

working closely with you.

He knows the target well.

What are we practicing on?

We've found a valley

in Scotland.

It's not nearly as tough

as the fjord...

but it's the best we can do.

- Barratt?

- Sir?

This gives you

exact schedules and routes...

to the training site.

Training to

commence immediately.

That's all, gentlemen.

Will you find Lieutenant Bergman

suitable quarters?

I certainly will, sir.

Nice to have you with us,


Thank you very much.

Wing Commander!

I wanted to tell you

how pleased I am...

they chose you

for this operation.

I'm glad you are, Lieutenant.

Wish I felt the same.

You give me the impression

of doing difficult things.

I do what they tell me to do.

This is terribly important.

That's what they always say.

You sound so cynical.

Do I?

You have not seen

the Nazis at close range.

- Close enough.

- In the air, yes.

But I have seen them

in my own country...

torturing and

killing innocent people.

So you want to bury them

under that mountain?

Yes, if it will help

win the war.

Look, as long as

we're working together...

we might as well

understand each other.

We'll do the best job we can...

but it's a job,

not the Holy Grail, OK?

I will try to remember that.

You do that.

Climb in, Lieutenant.

I'll drive you to your quarters.

Thank you.

"X" marks the spot.

Our climb was slow.

We'll have to increase
