They thought they were hot shots; now they had to prove it.
A group of top Mexican pilots ready to fly on an important American-Mexican mission are sent by their Government to train and fly alongside the top American pilots, in the midst of the Second World War. They travel from Mexico to Texas for intense training. These pilots not only overcome the Cultural barriers before them, but win over the American Military with their solid training and real instincts for battle and survival. Initially, they all are told that they are going to fight the Germans, but wind up in the Philippines for their battles, along the way learning more than they bargained for.
This is their story, a true story… a story of overcoming prejudice, gaining the respect, friendship and comradeship of the Americans, while becoming true heroes in their homeland.
These Hot Shot pilots were known as the AZTEC EAGLES.
