At an American air base in England, 1943, is conniving Sergeant Dolan, who manipulates everyone, and insubordinate ace fighter pilot Major Ed Hardin. When Ed is promoted to commander of his group, he must fight his former anti-authority stance as well as the enemy; tension grows as D-Day approaches. Generally lighthearted between moments of technicolor gore; lots of air combat footage, much of it genuine. Written by

In the first sequence of the fighters returning to their airfield, a wounded pilot is shown making his approach. We then see stock footage of a P-47 making a one-wheeled landing, one gear stuck in the up position. The next scene shows medical personnel aiding the pilot. In the background, his P-47 sits with both landing gear intact. See more
