Destination 60,000 was one of a cycle of late-1950s films dealing with the exploits of supersonic-jet test pilots. Though plane manufacturer Colonel Ed Buckley (Preston S. Foster) relies heavily upon the daring of his ace pilot Jeff Connors (Pat Conway), Buckley has trouble coming to terms with Connors' lack of discipline. But when Buckley nearly cracks up making a test flight himself, it is Connors, applying the rules of procedure gleaned during his combat experience, who comes to the rescue. Among the familiar faces dotting the supporting cast are Denver Pyle as a co-pilot and Jeff Donnell as Buckley's ever-patient spouse. Destination 60,000 was put together by Gross-Krasne Productions, a firm more closely associated with weekly TV series (Big Town, Dr. Hudson's Secret Journal, Mayor of the Town etc. )
