Storyline

A Gathering of Eagles  Rock Hudson plays an Air Force Colonel who has just been re-assigned as a cold war B-52 commander who must shape up his men to pass a grueling inspection that the previous commander had failed, and had been fired for. He is also recently married, and as a tough commanding officer doing whatever he has to do to shape his men up, his wife sees a side to him that she hadn’t seen before. THE HIGHER THEY FLY…THE FASTER THEY LIVE! THEY CAN’T SLOW UP EVEN FOR LOVE!

A very accurate depiction of life in SAC in the ’60s. Great movie, great footage.

A Gathering of Eagles  I was only able to see this movie once and have been looking for it ever since to no avail, so far. I was at Travis AFB at the time of it’s filming. I worked on the flight line and our planes were those used in the film. I was also TDY (temporary duty) at Beale AFB where I understand most or much of the filming took place. I worked on B-52’s and KC-135As in servicing, recovery and crew chief duty and spent a lot of time on alert duty at the hard pad Alert Facility. All this to say that the film was VERY true to what SAC life was like in the flesh. I can see why some think the plot was a little thin as it was a glimpse into what day-to-day life in SAC was like. The Minimum Interval Take-offs (MITOs)were very true to life, sometimes three bombers and/or tankers rolling on the runway at the same time. If full count points aren’t given for the plot, or there are those who would discount because of Rock Hudson’s personal life, certainly full credit has to be given for accuracy. I know, I was there! I would love to own a DVD of this movie. I have been waiting over 40 years. Help, anyone? I’d even settle for a VHS tape.
