This film was not particularly well-made or entertaining. However, if you enjoy vintage airplanes and aviation, it might be worth viewing. The plot premise is a husband and wife team who ferry surplus World War II aircraft. There are some wonderful shots of aircraft of the era. Also, the final scene involves an aircraft being guided through a GCA (Ground Controlled Approach) at Bovington Air Force Base, England (it existed but has long since closed). While not completely accurate, it does give a nice view of the radar equipment of the day, and includes a handoff from the tower/approach controller to the GCA controller. Overall, I enjoyed the film. As a bonus, you will see a young Alan Hale and younger Jerry Paris in minor roles.
