Storyline

U.S Air Force Sgt. Chuck Brennan always disliked playboy and hotshot, Col. Jim Herlihy. He first met him in Korea, where his emergency arrival for repairs while enroute for what Chuck thought was the colonels "hot date" in Tokyo, caused the death of several of his crewmen. Now several years later when Chuck, while still in the Air Force, is now weighing continued enlistment or retirement, the base's new C.O. is none other than Col. Herlihy. Compounding his dislike is a budding romance with Chuck's daughter, Lois. Written by Bill Walch

Trivia

The B-52 Stratofortress bombers weighed 500,000 pounds and could fly at a speed of 650+ miles per hour and travel 17,000 miles without having to land (they could refuel in mid-air). See more »

Goofs

When Chuck is ejected by the Colonel after the fire in the bomber, the scene changes to a parachute deploying under the aircraft, the aircraft shown is a Cessna light aircraft not a B52 that he was supposed to have been ejected from. See more »

MSgt. Chuck V. Brennan: Sure, she know the facts of life "old style" - she can handle the birds and the bees - but this guy's a jet job!
Edith Brennan: Can't you forget what happened in Korea?
MSgt. Chuck V. Brennan: It's more than that...
Edith Brennan: But you said yourself he's a good pilot and a good officer.
MSgt. Chuck V. Brennan: That's right, none better. I don't mind him handling a B-52 - but not my daughter!

Popular 50s air power drama with Natalie Wood
2 July 2004 | by (Fort Wayne, IN) – See all my reviews

This was a popular and often-run feature in the late 50s which had the advantage of a good cast in Karl Malden, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., and Natalie Wood.

"Flight" was very popular science in the 50s and the subject matter produced many films with big stars (Jimmy Stewart played in more than one of these, "Strategic Air Command" and "Spirit of St. Louis" to name a couple).

"Bombers B-52" and "X-15" (with Charles Bronson) shared double bills in my neighborhood on more than one occasion, as these films were likely to draw in a good crowd of young and enthusiastic boys who were probably building the plastic model kits at home as well.
