The men of the flying forts whose bravery became a legend
Buzz Rickson is a dare-devil World War II bomber pilot with a death wish. Failing at everything not involving flying, Rickson lives for the most dangerous missions. His crew lives with this aspect of his personality only because they know he always brings them back alive.

Rather typical early 60´s US movie set in wartime England 1943. In the context of the production time nothing special. But if you are a warbird fan you get some really good looks at the B17 bombers used in the movie. You actually get to see the belly landing of a B17 - no trick, the real thing.
