Plot Summary

During the Korean War, crusty veteran fighter pilot "Iceman" Saville (Robert Mitchum) takes command of a flight of F-86 Sabre jets. Although Saville is eager to fly the military's new plane, the pilots under his command sap his enthusiasm. On the one hand he must contend with the brash young Ed Pell (Robert Wagner), while on the other he must boost the confidence of nervous Carl Abbott (Lee Philips). The three men bond in the hunt for notorious North Korean ace "Casey Jones" (Leon Lontoc).
