General H.H. Arnold: on off-screen narrator introduces four of them to us, we see them before the war, during flight training, and in their first assignments as pilots. In flashbacks, we see one with his parents, we meet another's younger brother, we see one with his wife, and meet the fourth pilot's sweetheart. By the film's end, they are flying planes and matériel to General MacArthur in Australia and their families see Air Force planes flying overhead, protecting the nation from invasion.
