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

When the Sergeant is driving reporters onto the base he has normal rank patches sewn on his jacket; after he drops them off and drives over to an airplane to speak to some ground crew his rank is crudely stenciled on his sleeve. When he stops in front of HQ to talk to Wilbur, he's back in his original jacket with embroidered patches. See more
