Set in World War II it is film about fighter pilots of so called "Singing" squadron. The title comes from two scenes in the film, where the squadron is facing very hard dogfights with German fighter planes, so only "old men" (i.e. veterans) are sent up, while those fresh from flying school have to wait on the ground together with the mechanics. Soon, of course, the newcomers have replaced most of those veterans and have become "old men" themselves, taking to the skies while a new group of newcomers wait on the ground with the mechanics…

In round-the-clock counterattacks, devastating artillery assaults, and vicious hand-to-hand fighting, the Korean War's final, hellish chapter played out-while truce negotiations dragged on.
