At the outset of the Second World War the deserted airfield of Halfpenny Field becomes a bustling bomber command centre. Peter Penrose (John Mills) is placed under the command of Squadron Leader Flight Lieutenant David Archdale (Michael Redgrave), and the two become great friends. When the Americans join the allies in 1942, several of their number are stationed at the base, and the arrival of US pilot Johnny (Douglas Montgomery) complicates the established British friendships.
