The Film

Uncovering the secrets of the Korean War: from Stalin’s theft of a US fighter-jet to the disappearance of American pilots. Dramatic recreations interwoven with rare archive and modern day aerial photography bring to life the drama and excitement of the world’s first jet war.

31 Sabre pilots went missing in MiG Alley, a strip of airspace near the border of Korea and China, that was the centre of the air campaign in the war. No bodies or wreck sites have ever been found – until now.  For the first time, we reveal the fate of one of these airmen and discover a chilling new twist in their families’ hunt for answers.
