Ever since a run-in during the Korean War, grizzled airplane mechanic Sgt. Chuck Brennan has disliked hotshot pilot Col. Jim Herlihy. Brennan has a new reason to be ticked off: Helihy is dating his daughter. Central to Cold War-era preparedness is the new airship they're putting through a key test run: the 200-ton B-52 Stratofortress. There is no room for animosity, because on this flight, danger rides the skies.


From Library Staff

U.S. Air Force pilot Jim Herlihy (Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.) is in love with Lois Brennan (Natalie Wood), to the disapproval of her sergeant father (Karl Malden). There is action and romance in this flight film set against the backdrop of riveting aerial footage of jet plane maneuvers

Was great to see these famous war birds. They were polluting the skies. Malden sure had a chip on his shoulder.

A mix of romance, tension between the generations, tension between officer and subordinates, and a look at the B-52 bomber and some scary stuff amidst the Korean War.

Good acting by Karl Malden and Natalie Wood. Good look at the inside and outside of the B-52.
