Having been badly damaged by flak and enemy fighters, and almost out of fuel after a grueling eight hour mission over Europe, the Pilot of this B-17 Flying Fortress makes a forced landing in the safety of an English cornfield.
To the relief of the crew, a pair of P-51 Mustangs have escorted the damaged aircraft back across the North Sea and although not the intended landing place, the Mustang Pilots peel off as they see their charge safely back on friendly soil.
