Synopsis:
As Buz and Rosco are at Buz's home on leave, Buz falls for Christy Jameson but gets inveigled into an engagement with Tot Winter. Buz and Rosco retrain for duty on a "jeep" carrier, get shot down, and are captured by Japanese submariners. After their escape, Buz learns that he is next on an eerily accurate list, compiled by the squadron commander, of anticipated pilot deaths. The atomic bomb, and the Japanese surrender, save his life.
