Somewhat dated BUT...and not filmed in Korea (probably Southern Calif.)...this is one of the better movies about the Korean War and just plain fun to watch......there is all the ingredients...a "love" triangle.....a hot shot pilot....the old war horse who still can show up the kids....a "coward" who still flys...and a CO who is real jerk (he's only in the movie for a few sequences, fortunately)..a "bad guy" North Korean pilot....good flying sequences to rival Top Gun using the F86 Sabre Jet....pilots getting shot down and E&E'ing behind Korean lines.....NOT for the Artsy-Craftsy Set who tend to snub their collective noses at anything pertaining to war and kicking butt..!!! If you like action/war stories don't miss it....!!!
