First transmitted in 1983, this episode follows the 480 Platoon as their parachute training gets underway at RAF Brize Norton. They learn to jump: first from dry land; then from a balloon; before finally jumping out of a plane. Some recruits take to skies with ease but not all them will have enough time falling through the air to win their 'wings'.
