On a small island in the South Pacific, the Navy's P.R. department is spending WWII without getting near a ship. Lt. Max Siegal is the second in command to a clueless commanding officer who believes sea duty to be the worst punishment he can give one of his men. Siegal has to keep the foreign correspondents happy, keep his commander out of trouble and figure out a way for one of the enlisted sailors to date the lady lieutenant of his dreams - all while convincing a certain island schoolteacher that he's the man for her.
BuNo 50865, c/n 10520 built in 1945 as a C-54B serial 42-72415. Later registered as N67019 and used as a firebomber. Partially scrapped in 2013.
Among several war footages showing Japanese aircraft in distress, this highly recognizable and frequently used shot. Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
