Now, here's what we do. We put her up on the wing...
And she'll fake being afraid...
And the wind will blow her clothes off!
Wait! Why would the wind blow her clothes off? When I'm wing-walking, the wind doesn't blow MY clothes off.
Fool! Nobody wants to come and see YOU with YOUR clothes off!

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.
