The A Traitor in the Cockpit wiki last edited by pikahyper on 05/08/13 04:04AM View full history

The roar of four mighty Merlin engines powering each Lancaster, the crump of flak bursting close to the planes, the rumble of bombs exploding far below - it was all in a night's work for the bomber boys.

But for one Lanc crew, on one particular night, things were going to be different - because their pilot intended to land at an enemy airfield and hand his aircraft and its secret equipment over to the enemy.

Introduction by Scott Montgomery, Deputy Editor

It's been said that espionage stories are not ideally suited to Commando's text-and-pictures format and to some extent this is true. Cloak-and-dagger antics usually require a great deal of thought balloons for characters to explain the twisty-turny plot.

However, this book blows that theory out the (cockpit) window - because it's a thrilling air espionage adventure tale that just never lets up, populated by plucky British spies, tough Resistance men and nasty Nazis. Fantastic stuff, we hope you agree.

Originally released in Commando #2199.
