In 1954 the Korean Conflict was over and the fear of Russia attacking over the North Pole was real. A line of radar stations were built across Alaska and Canada. There were gaps over the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans that needed to be covered. Tonight is about the Lockheed Constellations (WV-2) and crews who filled the Pacific gap flying 24/7, 365 days per year over the North Pacific.
