Anthony Asquith directs this war drama starring John Mills and Michael Redgrave. At the outset of WWII, the deserted airfield of Halfpenny Field becomes a bustling bomber command centre. Peter Penrose (Mills) is placed under the command of Squadron Leader Flight Lieutenant David Archdale (Redgrave), and the two become great friends. When the Americans join the Allies in 1942, several of their number are stationed at the base, and the arrival of US pilot Johnny (Douglass Montgomery) complicates the established British friendships.
