An ex-pilot and current baseballer is recalled into the U.S. Air Force and assumes an increasingly important role in Cold War deterrence.
The B-47 cockpit used in the film is now on display at the March Field Air Museum in Riverside, CA.
Lt. Col. Robert 'Dutch' Holland:
You got any kids?
Sgt. Bible: Yep, two. One on the ramp, one in the hangar!
When Col.Holland is going for his first ride in the B-36, they taxi to the end of the runway. The AC calls for takeoff power and 100% power on the jets. The camera shifts to the outside of the aircraft and the pitot covers are still in place which would not happen if the aircraft is going to fly.
