During the Korean War, Chinese pilots are jeopardizing the American pilots to switch Air Superiority.
A good movie set but why a so unrealistic nose art (in fact, we guess why ...) ?
Tail code 11767 ... should be USAF s/n 51-1767 which in fact was dedicated to a Beech C-45G Expeditor.
The famous fighter built in Soviet Union or its licenced Chinese variant is the main star of the movie.
In fact, during the Korean War, airframes were provided by Soviet Union (MiG-15 bis) but in 1976, fighters used for the movie were more probably the Jianjiji J-2. If not model during air fighting.
Here is only a limited range of airframes among all these serials spotted : 3002, 3003, 3004, 3011, 3012, 3013, 3014, 3019, 3020, 3021, 3022 and many, many more seen in the background.
Serial 3019, hero among the multitude.
Various Instruction Sheet
Unidentified twin engine American Bomber (model).
In this category, USAF only used Douglas B-26 Invader which has a diffrent shape (especially the engine nacelle).
Barracks of the American fighter pilots with an American advertising/propaganda wallpaper (probably a F-86 drawing besides a pilot).
Or perhaps its Chinese license built Jianjiji Jiaolianji JJ-2.
The only one seen all along the 95 minutes duration.
Acting an American bomber (note the Pin up poster).
