Storyline

When Noah Dugan agrees to fly missionary Bernadette Lafleur and her cargo of animals to a remote island, its only because he is on the run from a couple of bookies. What neither of them know is that two of Miss Lafleur's young students have stowed away with the animals & Miss Lafleur's transistor radio has interfered with the plane's instruments and they're all now miles off course. After a forced landing on a remote island, Dugan, Bernadette, Bobby and Julie discover that they are not alone. Together with two Japanese soldiers who have been stranded on the island since WWII, they must turn the plane into a seaworthy boat if they are ever to make it home. When Bobby and Julie insist that they cannot leave the animals behind, the converted plane truly becomes a second Noah's Ark Written by April M. Cheek <Aravis2713@aol.com>

Trivia

The Boeing B-29 Superfortress featured in the flying sequences was Fertile Myrtle, Air Force 45-21787, Navy BuNo 84029, Civil Registration N91329. From 1951 to 1956 it was used by the Navy and NACA to launch the Douglas D-558-II Skyrocket at Edwards Air Force Base, California. It is currently in the collection of the International Sport Aviation Museum in Lakeland, Florida. Four other partial B-29 Superfortresses were acquired from the China Lake Naval Weapons Center, California. One was used for interior shots at the Disney studio. Another was used for night sequences afloat in MGM's outdoor tank. The third was used for the crash site on the island and the fourth was made into the floating Noah's Ark. They were returned to the Navy after filming concluded. See more »

Been a while since I've seen it, but...

I remember it being very good. Christians won't be offended. A missionary brings a man to Christ, and they do not make Christians appear to be idiots. A good adventure movie, with a tinge of action and adventure, though not violent.
