Trivia

The head of the Royal Swedish Air Force, general Bengt Nordenskjöld, demanded several changes in the script if the Air Force was to participate. For example, there could be no fatal crashes and it was "unthinkable" that a Swedish Officer could fall in love with a simple shop-attendant. So, the girl in question had to work in a library instead. See more »

Goofs

In a scene a squadron of J29's make a practice-attack with air to ground rockets. The problem is, that the planes have no rockets under their wings in all shots leading up to the rocket-firing shot. See more »

Worth to see for the flying.
14 February 2010 | by fenris-656-914998See all my reviews

The plot is not the best, but one has to consider that general Nordenskjöld, commander of the Swedish Air Force at the time, demanded several changes in the script if the Air Force was to cooperate. The flying sequences are very well executed for a Swedish film of that time. There is some flaws in editing. For example, the aircraft for the most time are marked with an "8" (for F8, the fighter-wing at Barkarby where most of the film was made) but, without explanation, they sometimes have other markings. Also, a segment shows a squadron of J29 fighters on a training mission. When they arrive at their target, they have transformed into A29's, the ground attack version of J29, and fire air to ground- rockets they didn't carry in previous shots. All in all, I enjoyed the movie because of the flying, and because I did my military training in the Swedish Air Force.
