That wasn't to be the last time we left pieces of aeroplane all over Germany, but you remember your first time. It's just like your first kiss.
It is 1944 and as their battered Lancaster bomber limps home to base in thick fog, an RAF crew are horrified to find a second bomber just moments in front. It is too close for their own pilot to react, but in one skilful move their forerunner swoops out of the way and the crew's lives are saved.
Back on the runway the seven thankful young men eagerly await their saviours' return and are stunned, when the pilot climbs down from the cockpit, to find themselves face to face with female Air Transport Auxiliary pilot Grace Baker.
Grace quickly befriends the crew, introducing them to their new bomber, Tuesday's Child. Then, when rear gunner Pete the Pole absconds, the lads don't think twice about asking Grace secretly to take his place in Tuesday as they return to Germany...
Narrated by Tuesday's radio operator, Charlie Bassett, this enthralling drama of air combat at the height of the Second World War unfolds into a gritty, heartfelt, amusing story of friendships and passions bound by danger and the relief of surviving another day.
