Storyline

A new group of plebes (including roommates Joe, Russ, Jerry and Walt) arrive at an Air Force training camp and go through the usual "course of sprouts." Then on to jet training, where cadet Russ Coulter meets lovely Janet...who just happens to be the estranged wife of Major Page. Will a potential romantic triangle prevent Russ from qualifying as a fighter pilot? Or does the two men's rivalry run even deeper? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

18 inches!! I wouldn't WALK that close to another guy.
9 September 2004 | by (Lincoln England) – See all my reviews

It's 53 years old, it's a B movie, it's unashamed propaganda for the USAF - and I loved it. This movie is in my opinion a minor classic and a real piece of history. There's no definite 'plot' to the film, but it's the story of a group of USAF cadets going through flying training in the (very) early years of the jet engine. I really enjoyed it & all the actors showed the enthusiasm of young men at the beginning of their careers. If I was 21 again and transported back to 1951 I couldn't think of a better choice. It was really interesting to see "museum piece" airplanes brand new and the subject of such awe from the cadets and the photography throughout was as crisp as if it'd been filmed yesterday. It was also one of Rock Hudson's earliest movies and, it's so obvious why he later became a star. 'Air Cadets' certainly didn't win any Oscars but it's MUCH more realistic than the ridiculous 'Top Gun' and well worth watching.
