Thunder Birds ★★½ 1942

Combat flight instructor Steve Britt (Foster) trains Brit cadet Stackhouse (Sutton) to become an ace fighter pilot in spite of the fact that they love the same women (Tierney). Fine performances and an intersting story keep this from being just another WW2-era-flag-waver. 78m/C DVD .
