The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

When the Japanese fighters attack the bomber, we can clearly see that there are five of them. Foxie also confirms there are five enemy planes, and the planes are counted during the attack as they are shot down by the gunners. But when we cut to a close-up of the Japanese pilot, more than five planes can be seen on the far side of his fighter. See more »
Chester Morris and Richard Arlen are lifelong rivals, sort of like Archie and Reggie, who somehow end up in the Air Corps, in the same unit, at the same time, as.... (Drum roll)....Aerial Gunners! When they're not busy training with their .50 caliber machine guns they're busy trying to outmaneuver each other for the attention of the scrumptious Amelita Ward, who looks young enough to be their daughter. (I'm not sure if she was Mrs. Mugs Mahoney at this time. Ha! Imagine Mugs as a bomber's Tailgun Charlie!). Anyways the men carry on like a couple of Tom Sawyers trying to impress Becky Thatcher, which seems out of place since they are both well beyond the age when men typically do that. Of course one guy is the straight arrow and the other is the rat who learns his lesson albeit too late to do him much good. It's kind of funny how that happens in these movies. You'd almost think it would be better to NOT learn your lesson, that way you would at least dramatically increase your life span.
This is a typical WW2 propaganda movie which won't do you any damage but it's only mildly exciting. It is a pretty interesting artifact of its time though.
