Throughout the scene where Mary Beth is wing walking, she is standing up while the dummy that was her stand-in was kneeling. So from one scene to the next the figure was standing, kneeling, standing, etc. See more »
It's gonna be a monoplane.
A monoplane. Are you telling me you're building me an airplane with only one wing?

Classic "Biggles Opera" - Redford at his most handsome!
This is a well shot film (the light in the Prarie scenes are beautiful) about why people love flying and how it gets into their bones to the point where they will take great risks with their lives as well as other people's!
Redford looks heroic and every bit the Ladies Man especially in uniform.
The aerial sequences are terrific with some really risky stunts and shots. Made in 1975, there are no CGI effects - everything is real and raw.
I felt the film to be a little slow at times but it's a film for grown ups so we can take that speed, can't we?
Scott A. Frisina's review on the main page is as good a synopsis as anyone can give - that's how it is - read it then see this excellent film.
