The Screen Guide

During the latter half of World War II a fighter pilot stationed near Darwin in the Northern Territory, Australia, flew to Darwin to collect the Christmas beer. For some unknown reason on his return he became lost, ran out of fuel and crash landed his Spitfire plane into crocodile infested mangroves in Western Australia. He survived, and made it back to base. But his plane remained and lay preserved in the thick mud until recently when a team of ten Royal Australian Air Force men decided to dig the plane out. This is their adventure story. How they battle 100 degree heat, waist deep mud, and the fear of huge man-eating crocodiles which stalked them all the time.
