It is 1940, and the diabolical mind of Adolf Hitler is planning to bomb England into submission to his warped dreams of a ‘Fortress Europe’. Standing between Britain’s freedom & Hitler’s terrifying plans is the R.A.F – dedicated pilots who took to the skies again & again in the face of overwhelming odds. The German Luftwaffe’s planes outnumber the R.A.F’s by more than 2 to 1 – 650 planes of the R.A.F. vs. 2,500 of the Luftwaffe! These odds. however, do not deplete the determination of the R.A.F. to stop Hitler, and as the Luftwaffe launches wave after wave of Heinkel 111 bombers against British cities, the R.A.F. responds, under the leadership of Air Vice Marshal Park (Howard) and Squadron Leaders Canfield (Caine) and Harvey (Plummer) who lead the newest pilots of the R.A.F. into confrontation after confrontation with the Luftwaffe’s experienced veterans, with the aim of driving Hitler’s forces away from Dover’s white cliffs for good.
