633 Squadron (1964)

633 Squadron is a 1964 WWII film based on a true story of a DeHavilland Mosquito fighter bomber squadron assigned to a "do or die" mission. When Allied forces learn of a Nazi plan to launch rockets at England prior to D-Day, the 633 Squadron is assigned to destroy the rocket fuel plant to eliminate the threat. Cliff Robertson stars as Wing Commander Roy Grant, the squadron leader as they fly into the Norwegian fjord and into history. Director Walter Grauman would later utilize footage from this film for his 1970 WWII thriller The Last Escape.
