When "Sandbags" Riley (Harry Davenport) says that he reported to President Grant after a free balloon flight in 1879. Grant, although he still could be addressed as "President," was not President of the United States in 1879. He had been out of office for two years. See more »
I was either 12 or 13 when I saw this movie and it probably had much to do with my becoming a United States Air Force pilot. Shortly after I saw the movie my father and I attended the grand opening of Ellington Field in Houston and I saw a P-38 and fell in love with aviation.
I have seen the movie again in recent years and after twenty-nine years in the Air Force tend to pick the movie apart for the "Hollywood" production which is frequently quite different from the real world. However, it was an outstanding movie for its time and I probably have many fellow aviators that this movie influenced when they were young and impressionable.
