The Sky Slow-Mover (original title Nebesnyy tikhokhod) is a Soviet 1945 war comedy directed by Semyon Timoshenko. Major Bulochkin (Nikolai Kryuchkov), a Soviet fighter pilot, was wounded in air fight. Medics forbade him to pilot fighter planes so he is transferred to a position of commander of a reconnaissance squadron equipped with outdated and slow Po-2 biplanes and manned (to Bulochkin's great surprise) with female pilots. After many adventures Bulochkin and his two friends find their loves.
