Excitement, adventure and courage in the war-torn skies over northern Europe are the perfect ingredients for this pulse-pounding World War II air drama. Two Academy Award winners headline the solid cast: Cliff Robertson (Best Actor, Charity, 1968) and George Chakiris (Best Supporting Actor, West Side Story, 1961). Robertson, an avid flyer in real life, plays a combat-weary pilot whose R.A.F. squadron is ordered on an apparent suicide mission to destroy a Nazi rocket fuel plant tucked deep into a Norwegian fjord. Chakiris portrays a resistance fighter whose fate numbers among the many ironies in the expertly written screenplay. To make the film, which is based on a true story, a squadron of legendary Mosquito fighter-bombers was resurrected from near extinction. Dazzling flying sequences, bone-shaking sound and superb special effects help make this one of the most realistic air combat films ever to reach the screen.
