Piece of Cake: Episode 2 (S1EP2 ITV 9 Oct 1988, George Anton)



Episode 2: It’s Autumn and Hornet Squadron are billeted with their Spitfires in France, near the German border. For most of the young pilots, their posting to France is the first time they have left the shores of England. They spend the initial lazy days of ‘the phoney war’ billeted in an idyllic French chateau pampered by their charismatic Squadron Leader, but straining for real action and dreaming of romance.
