Synopsis: The year of 1951, the peak of the Korean War. Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong render military assistance to the North Korean dictator Kim Il-Sung intending to set control over the peninsula. Trying to avoid the open conflict with the USA having the UNO mandate for a peacekeeping operation, the Soviet Union secretly sends a volunteer corps of the Air Force armed with the newest jet fighters MIG-15. The Lieutenant Petr Orlov, son of the Soviet Union Air Marshal, is trying to use the situation for a fast career progress. Realizing the apparent advantages of a jet fighter against obsolete piston-engine airplanes of the Coalition, Orlov shortly increases the number of shot down planes and receives a longed-for ace status. Orlov’s colleagues, the WWII veteran Matvey Zarubin and his partner Andrey Volokhov, treat the achievements of the newly-baked ace ironically. Orlov’s career aspirations and professional jealousy to Zarubin, who had hit several modern North American Sabres, transform in Orlov’s mind in an obsessive idea to outpoint Zarubin.
In the state of utter annoyance Orlov dares a risky step – to perform a solo flight to the no-fly area in the south of the Korean peninsula. Orlov hopes to shoot down a landing Sabre jet. Failing to find the enemy’s fighter Orlov attacks the US airbase and destroys an air ambulance with seriously wounded infantrymen that was about to take off.
The incident captures the headlines of the Western press. The US headquarters in Korea conclude a contract with a tester of North American Company Alex Bower specializing on vengeance operations. Bower ferries to South Korea an experimental all-weather version of Sabre equipped with the newest airborne radar. The US Air Force Colonel Thomson promises huge compensation to Bower from a private army fund for destruction of a Russian MIG. Bower arrives in Korea with his personal mechanic, former Luftwaffe technician Karl, who is an expert in jet maintenance.
After the information about the wreckage of the air ambulance appears in the press the commander of the squadron Yegorov and the head of the Special Department Kulikov impose obstruction on Orlov. Yegorov seeking to humiliate Orlov admits that by Marshal’s personal order he was forced to secretly cover Orlov by an accompanying fighter during all his flights. Having incurred punishment, Orlov evades deportation to the Soviet Union and nurtures the plans of revenge.
