    A charming well-made studio [Columbia] B film with a great cast and a fine story premise. Five test pilots are hired to test an experimental new plane, but the need to get the plane accepted by the US Air Force may just cost them all of their lives. Dedicated top ace Richard Dix woos the daughter of the factory who also happens to be engaged to the flyer/designer of the craft. Utterly predictable as to how it plays out, but the veteran cast, especially Lloyd Nolan and Shirley Ross, shine and make it all fun to watch.
