The story of jet pilots flying over Korea by day, from their Itazuke Air Base in Japan, and of their wives, on station with them, who have dinner ready when they return. Jane Carter (Coleen Gray), a reporter for a large newspaper syndicate arrives... she's also the estranged wife of the assistant squadron commander, Colonel Gil Manton (Robert Stack.) At first, she goes at her assignment of getting a story on the pilots wives with the same ruthlessness and persistence that broke up her marriage - but a mirror isn't needed to peek around the corner to where this one is headed.Written by

At first, when I saw it listed on my upcoming viewing list, I was excited, as I had never seen this picture. Now I know why I had never seen it.
I almost feel like digging up the writers, producers and director of this bomb and ask for compensation for the time I wasted watching it.
The use of stock footage is badly edited and contains many shots of WWII aircraft and if you are an aviation buff at all, you have seen these shots a hundred times and can recognize each aircraft used. American and German WWII aircraft abound in this Korean era story. There is not even an attempt to make these shots work as Korean era combat.
What was the budget for this turkey? Using F-86 aircraft poorly disguised to represent MiGs is terrible. Yuck, horrible. Mere words cannot express how bad, with a capital B, this picture is.
Avoid it at all cost.
Pass it by. This movie stinks !
