This training film contains an instructional prologue to its dramatic story which features Ronald Reagan as a fighter pilot. Both the prologue and the storyline serve the same purpose: to instruct the viewer on the importance of recognizing the difference between the American-built P-14 fighter plane and the Japanese-built Zero fighter plane.
