Review: The Flying Missile, movie.

May 20, 2022 · in Reviews · · 5 · 0.9K

I found this obscure little movie on the web. This 1950's movie starred Glen Ford as submarine commander involved in early submarine guided missile development. Though the story is fictitious, and a bit boring. In it you get to see V-2's, 's, [] the Ford/Republic Aviation version called the , and Guppy submarines. The last photo is of a Loon at the Cradle of Aviation Museum on Long Island.

  1. Cool movie poster! With my daughter moving to NYC soon the cradle museum is on my bucket list.

  2. Thanks for sharing, Robert!

  3. OMG! I've actually recently streamed this movie. Got sucked in by the title. But it had submarines and flying stuff in it so who cares about the plot (or lack thereof).

  4. We visited the Cradle of Aviation Museum in July 2015 when three of my wife's poems were featured in a special show there about the Literature of Flight. We were given a personally guided tour by Rod Leonhard, the museum's Creative Director. As a retired A-10 pilot, I really liked the Republic Aviation displays. That museum is a Gem!
