Air Strike, a classic 1955 war film is a must see for fighter jet movie fans. When Commander Stanley Blair (Richard Denning) is tasked with turning his group of unskilled and inexperienced recruits into competent fighter pilots, his job seems all but impossible. Blair is no-nonsense, with little patience for mistakes. His recruits are green and create endless messes for him to clean up or fix. He faces problem after problem in trying to prepare them for the combat they face. The difficult task is made even more challenging by the fact that the unit's ace pilot has alienated Blair's second-in-command with his cocky, reckless flying. They might just wash him out except for the fact that he shows impressive talent. Somehow, the team and its leaders must come together to overcome the odds against them, or they will go down in flames. Interspersed with levity, this war drama is sure to inspire.
