Storyline

Lt. J.D. Jones is a pilot with a serious problem; with each mission he flies he loses more of his self-confidence and composure. Finally, he causes his bomber to crack up on takeoff, killing or injuring several members of his crew, including his severely wounded co-pilot. His flight engineer, Sgt. Chapman, gets into hot water over black-market trading in weapons, and he needs an alibi. Chapman convinces J.D. to cover for him in return for shifting the blame for the crash on the comatose co-pilot. J.D.'s older brother, Frank, at first protective, becomes disillusioned with J.D.'s deceit to the point of washing his hands of the matter entirely. Written by alexk-6

Did You Know?

Goofs

During the chase flight, Col. Gallagher's P51 changes several times. Upon take off, there is a 4 letter/number designation on the tail and the propeller hub is a solid olive drab/green color. Some of the in flight scenes show a plane with a striped propeller hub and another scene shows a plane with a rectangular white box on the tail instead of a letter/number. The long distance scenes show the plane to be painted olive drab/green, but in the close ups, the plane is a bare metal silver. See more »
