A Gathering of Eagles, 904th Strategic Aerospace Wing flag

original movie prop

Flag from "A Gathering of Eagles", now a classic Cold War movie, much like the WW2 film "Twelve O'Clock High", which the producer-screenwriter Sy Bartlett also wrote. This is the flag of the fictional 904th Strategic Aerospace Wing stationed at Carmody Air Force Base near San Francisco. Flag is seen in the headquarters office below then President John F. Kennedy's photo, who actually had a real life role during the filming, as SAC personnel were dealing with Russian Nikita Khrushchev's introduction in Cuba of nuclear ballistic missiles. This film was followed in 1964 by the likewise Cold War classic movies Dr. Strangelove and Fail-Safe , but this film is unique as it was actually made at Beale Air Force Base, in California, using their facilities, B-52 aircraft, missile sites, and personnel of the real 456th Strategic Aerospace Wing.
