During the Korean War, Captain Hank James enlist in the U.S. Air Force and joins a Sabre squadron where his brother Billy is a part of. However, he soon discovers that his brother is declared missing-in-action. Hank tries to talk with Billy's fellow wingmates and the commanding officer on what happen to his brother, but they strongly refuse to talk of how he was lost. When Hank again tries to get one of the pilots, Sam Adams, to talk but only to be rebuke, Hank angrily punches him and is restrain by the other pilots.
Hank soon join in his first combat strike and is task on trying to find a secret North Korean "Zebra" air field. He then realize that Billy was on the same mission finding that air field when he was lost. Hank's squadron falls into a MiG ambush in which he proves his skills in downing the jets while also saving Adams. Because of Hank's actions, Adams finally explains on what happen to Billy: he defected to the North Koreans that was witnessed by Adams. Hence the reason why Billy's wingmates refuse to reveal the shocking truth to Hank.
Hank is left deeply disturb and on the next day continues the search for the enemy air field. He is soon beset by MiGs, in which he then immediately surrenders to the MiGs in order to be escorted to North Korea to find Billy. His Korean escorts orders him to land at "Zebra," where he sees American prisoners working on the runway. Among those prisoners is signaling him with a flash of light: telling Hank that the airfield is a decoy and the real "Zebra" airfield is north by northwest. Hank immediately breaks off and flies to the real "Zebra" where he destroys the jets that are on the ground. Although without proof, Hank realize that Billy didn't defected but was trying to find the airfield. By the time he return to his base, his jet's cameras are examined and the films are developed to show Hank's actions. When the pictures showing the American P.O.W.'s are magnified, it shows the prisoner who was signalling to Hank was Billy. Thus clearing Billy's innocence.
