The war is almost over now. Pierre Clostermann and two teamates are flying in a peacefull sky. They are on their way for a last mission in May 1945. The "The Big Show" (Pierre Clostermann's book) is coming to the end. "Tertius Primus Erit" (the third will be the first) is a latin motto which was written on the fighter's tail of the squadron.
