Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The original Japanese title of Tiger Flight was Kyomo Ware Ozorani Re. The plot is essentially a made-in-Japan knockoff of the British classic Breaking the Sound Barrier. The heroes are a group of pilots who want to go faster than anyone has gone before. But no so fast as to miss out on romance while they're on solid ground. Tatsuya Mihashi stars as the squadron's no-nonsense commander. So as you see, not every Japanese film can be Rashomon or Seven Samurai.
