Operation Parliament Summary
The sound of a ghostly Lancaster Bomber, its engines struggling and misfiring, has haunted the old airfield for sixty years. In 1943, Johnnie Sanderson and his crew were seven brave young men who had volunteered to fight the tyranny of Nazi Germany from the air, flying the Lancaster Bomber, they had christened 'Gloria', with 599 Squadron RAF. Flak, searchlights and nightfighters generate the gut-wrenching fear of the nightly bombing sorties over war-torn Europe, and they quickly learn that the scythe of war reaps a deadly harvest amongst bomber crews. 599 Squadron trains to take on vital raids against Germany and Hitler's world threatening 'Wunderwaffen' rocket program, culminating in the most important and dangerous sortie they have ever undertaken, 'Operation Parliament'. To ensure an Allied victory they must succeed at all costs, and from the beginning, those costs are very high. Johnnie, though, after losing too many comrades and friends to the deadly war, has only one more mission on his mind - to get his crew home. Little does he realise, just how long it will be before he can finally say, "Home at last, chaps, home at last."
