Movie about 36 paratroopers sent to crush a Jap airborne radars system that would otherwise recognize the coming invading power from the air. There are only 12 that are able to make it little by little, as their recovery area is at risk and they need to be re-delivered until other precautions can be taken.
Flight fans can see the preparation from the runway until they meet their descent area early in the movie with two C-47 paratroopers. In the final, a massive parachute squad and a sailplane dropping, followed by Flynn and his survivors, who are escorted backwards by a low-flying C-47 of a CG-4 seated on the floor.
It is a calm movie, interrupted by brief fighting sequences. He follows a recruitment man from working on a B-24D to shooting schools to stern gunning in the same Liberator-flightcrew. We' ll also see him doing a few exercises in an AT-6 after he leaves an airline that contains a few old B-10s.
Do not confuse The Tanks Are Comming with Warners' movie of the same name. This Technicolor shortfilm accompanies a taxi driver through his education with Ft. Knox, from the fundamentals to military game.
