Captain Simms and Lieutenant Gainey fly a night patrol mission. The two RAF fighter pilots risk their lives battling enemy raiders in the darkness, but trying to land their spent Spitfires during blackout conditions prove to be even more dangerous. While emergency unfolds overhead, young Harry Winslow and his friends are distracted from their own mission at home on the Winslow farm. Even an entire squadron of loyal RAF pilots might not be enough to save Harry from being grounded indefinitely by his disappointed mother.
Join Harry on the airfield when the 14th Squadron's thundering fighter planes scramble to their "Night Mission" and disappear in the darkness. See how these men risk their lives to protect their country, friends, family, and fellow fliers. These are ordinary men who do extraordinary things. The kinds of things that make them heroes.
