18 inches!! I wouldn't WALK that close to another guy.
It's 53 years old, it's a B movie, it's unashamed propaganda for the USAF - and I loved it. This movie is in my opinion a minor classic and a real piece of history. There's no definite 'plot' to the film, but it's the story of a group of USAF cadets going through flying training in the (very) early years of the jet engine. I really enjoyed it & all the actors showed the enthusiasm of young men at the beginning of their careers. If I was 21 again and transported back to 1951 I couldn't think of a better choice. It was really interesting to see "museum piece" airplanes brand new and the subject of such awe from the cadets and the photography throughout was as crisp as if it'd been filmed yesterday. It was also one of Rock Hudson's earliest movies and, it's so obvious why he later became a star. 'Air Cadets' certainly didn't win any Oscars but it's MUCH more realistic than the ridiculous 'Top Gun' and well worth watching.
