Trivia

Near the end of the movie the B-24 bombers, flown by actual Army Air Corp pilots, were flying toward the bridge. The movie appears to cut filming the bombers before the three planes reach the bridge. During the filming the three bombers actually flew under the bridge, which if shown in the movie houses would have caused the pilots a great deal of troubles with the Army brass. See more »

A cadet tells it like it is!
13 April 2002 | by (Florida U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This movie gets it right. As a former USAF Aviation Cadet, I can tell you this movie has it all. The tedium of the application process. The waiting for word. The joy of acceptance. The worry about making it through the course. The sorrow of watching one's buddies (perhaps the best of them) wash out. The anguish of paying the ultimate price - the death of fellow student airmen. The glory of graduation. Always the flying, the flying, the flying. Many are called but few are chosen. We did for pay what we would have eagerly paid to do. Later, a lifetime of flying fighters and close air support aircraft. Living through combat in Viet Nam but always with the foundation gained in the Aviation Cadet Corps.
