Her husband (Bruce Bennett), had been a prisoner and wasn't dead, and showed up before the wedding and more or less put a damper on the whole proceedings.

Although it is always good news the edition of classic 3D movies this one happens to be so bore that not even the 3D raises it up. All roles are quite flat and unidimensional. The love story is uninteresting and unnecessary. The film plot should be about new pilots' training and frankly this is hardly seen, although may have been the main focus of interest. Fess Parker and Chuck Connors (among the best of the film) do appear in small roles. So in the end the best thing about this movie is 3D: although there are not special effects -not even great aircraft fights- the restoration makes it bright and gives us an ultimate approximation to those years' stereoscopic experience.
