A classic and favorite of aviation enthusiasts for many decades. And a well liked television series during the 1960's.
However, very few of those people have ever actually read the story, and because of that they never know about things in the story that they miss.
For example: In ther movie the character of Jesse Bishop is killed when his aircraft is blowen up on a mission. However, in the story, Jesse Bishop ends up in a P.o.W. camp.
