Joseph "Mac" McConnell Jr. (Alan Ladd) dreams of piloting airplanes, so much that he goes AWOL from an Army base to take flying lessons. When the military police go looking for him, Mac hitches a ride with Bob (Robert Ellis), a teenager who takes him home to meet the family, including Bob's sister, Pearl (June Allyson). Mac and Pearl eventually marry, but she worries whenever he sets foot in a plane -- especially when he's chosen as a test pilot for the new Sabre jet.
