Plot Summary
Straight out of flight school, Ensign Alan Drake (Robert Taylor) plans to arrive at his assigned San Diego naval post with a flourish -- but is forced to eject due to dense fog, hardly making a good impression. Drake's squadron, led by Cmdr. Billy Gray (Walter Pidgeon), puts up with his less than stellar contributions. But when the men think Drake is having an affair with Gray's wife, Lorna (Ruth Hussey), their tolerance ends. Drake, now an outsider once more, must prove himself to the others.
