Toward the Unknown
A disgraced pilot is no longer allowed to fly as a result of his experience as a POW (prisoner of war) during the Korean War. Brutally tortured and brainwashed, he cracked under the strain. Now, the former pilot wants to fly again, but a general at Edwards Air Force Base in California fears that the pilot could suffer another breakdown. The general's secretary, who is the pilot's former girlfriend, intervenes with the general on behalf of the pilot, who then sets out to prove to himself that he is mentally fit to fly. This high-flying thriller uses exciting footage of the USAF Thunderbirds in action.
