At the dawn of supersonic flight in the 1950s a group of Edwards Air Force Base experimental aircraft test pilots push themselves to the limit.
Lloyd Nolan's character is based on Gen. Al Boyd, an AFFTC Commander who was instrumental in the testing and developing of numerous new aircraft at Edwards during the 1940s and '50s.
Brig. Gen. Bill Banner:
Even with torture, you're not the kind to crack.
Early in the film when Bond observes General Banner crash his aircraft, it's referred to as an "F-102". In reality the hulk that Banner is pulled from is a Convair XF-92, the experimental predecessor to the F-102 Delta Dagger.
