Onetime juvenile star Bobby Diamond (remember him in Fury?) produced and starred in this patriotic quickie. Diamond plays a rural youth who joins the paratrooper training school at Fort Bragg. His city-bred colleagues have a great deal of fun at Bobby's expense during training. But when the trainees actually get into the air, it is Our Hero who shows everyone else up. James Landis produced and wrote Airborne, which is highlighted by the expertly lensed parachute-drop photography of Larry Raimond.
