Sam Blake was fed up. He’d come from Canada to join the R.A.F. to fight Nazis as a fully qualified pilot, only to find he had to learn to fly all over again, the official way.
Then they kicked him out of a fighter squadron. “Too reckless and irresponsible,” they said. “Give him a bomber. He can’t pull any wild stunts in that.”
But Sam saw this as a chance for real glory. He flew his bomber as if it were a sprightly Spitfire and even turned on Nazi fighters. What a guy!
