It is WW II, 1943, RAF Base Ducksford England. A lone B-17 enters the landing pattern and comes in for a landing. The plane comes to a halt and no one gets out. A British officer goes on board and find the aircraft empty. No crew and barely any damage. All the parachutes are there. Where is the crew? Why would they jump without their parachutes. What could possibly cause a flight crew to jump to certain death?

The aircraft is taken apart and put back together to solve the mystery.
