Storyline

The story of jet pilots flying over Korea by day, from their Itazuke Air Base in Japan, and of their wives, on station with them, who have dinner ready when they return. Jane Carter (Coleen Gray), a reporter for a large newspaper syndicate arrives... she's also the estranged wife of the assistant squadron commander, Colonel Gil Manton (Robert Stack.) At first, she goes at her assignment of getting a story on the pilots wives with the same ruthlessness and persistence that broke up her marriage - but a mirror isn't needed to peek around the corner to where this one is headed. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Welll,,,, yeah, but--
2 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Agree with you guys about some of the stock footage. TOP GUN, it ain't, but, even the bad stuff is good, since,,, ya can't see any real Sabre Jets anymore,,, except for ONE that has been restored and does the air shows. Early Robert Stack is priceless, considering his Elliot Ness, and Airplane work with Zucker and Abrams. The part that always got me was the Korean pilot who got shot up, and rips off his face mask. In the theatrical version I saw, that was when a black and white movie switched to color for all the blood in the cockpit. Yeeecht!~! The McConnell Story is a bit better, and The Hunters is better yet, especially for the flying sequences, but this one was thoroughly enjoyable for a ten year old kid who loved airplanes and lived for those Saturday Matinée double features. So, yeah, it's a turkey, but, what the heck --- Gobble Gobble~!!~! ;-)
