In the beginning of the film, Col. Greg Brandon (still in flight suit) is called into his general's office who informs him that he is to brief the high command on his idea for a thousand plane raid, and orders him to wear his "pinks", a uniform of the time. When they arrive at headquarters, he is not wearing pinks but a dark brown uniform. See more »

Better in Spanish!
25 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just saw this 36 year old movie on a Spanish T.V. channel.It was a midnight movie and it's dubbed in Spanish. This movie is very and I mean very cheaply made. It looks more like a made for T.V. movie. However, it was made in 1969 and most likely it was riding on the coat-tails of such films as Battle for Britan or Operation Crossbow. I like Christopher George, but the poor guy just wasn't given any decent acting roles. I feel his "meatiest" role was that of gunman Nelson McCloud in the John Wayne movie, El Dorado. Sadly, Christopher George died of a massive heart attack at 54, and is best remembered for his hit 1960s T.V. show, The Rat Patrol. As for this film, well, it's better in Spanish! Only thing, I don't speak Spanish!
