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>

Highly recommended for its its portrayal of Aviation Cadet life in the 50's
10 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1951 I went to the Premier of this movie in Houston Texas. I was an Aviation Cadet at the time. I have seen the movie on AMC several times. Although there are no legitimate tapes as far as I know I have obtained one from ebay. I would like to get an uncut 16mm or 35mm film for showing if they are available. I have collected peripherals such as posters,black and white stills and ads about this movie. The movie came out during the Korean War and was done using actual settings and real Air Force persona. In fact in the initial screening in Houston several of my classmates are shown. The movie as shown on AMC does not include that segment. It may have been cut out after the initial premier before being distributed. It was realistic as it showed the life of a cadet from start to his commission. It also showed the heartbreak of being "washed out" as a good many cadets were. It is truly a film of the early fifties and shows young men being prepared for war in the Korean skies.
