Synopsis for "The Ghost Plane"

In Formosan air space, at night, Red Chinese Colonel Gow and his MiG fighter pilots, Squadron 17, suffer severe casualties inflicted by an unmarked, all-white, seemingly intangible, U.S.-built fighter jet. Gow devises a cunning trap maneuver and deploys two squadrons of MiGs to carry it out, leading his own unit personally. Aerial combat ensues; Gow and several of his pilots are killed; the rest retreat.

The "Ghost Plane" turns out to be an elaborate hoax, played out from a USAF aircraft, using specialized projection equipment, and backed by at least one real U.S. fighter jet.
