'The Hard Way Home', pays tribute to the magnificent Halifax crews who flew with Bomber Command during World War II.
In the late summer of 1941 a lone Halifax of 405 Sqn RCAF struggles home the hard way - damaged and alone. One of the aircraft's engines is already out and another is smoking badly as the exhausted pilot and his crew fight to keep their unwieldy bomber airborne. Any marauding Luftwaffe fighters would have found them easy prey, but fortunately they have been spotted by a formation of Hurricanes from 253 Sqn on a routine patrol. For that final leg of their long journey this crew will at last have protection to see them safely back to base.
