The Sun of Korea

By Unstung



FADE IN:


EXT. AIRPORT. NIGHT. (2003)


The camera pans around the scenery while above the airport.


CUT TO:


EXT. AIRPORT. KOREAN AIR LINES BOEING 747 TAKING OFF. NIGHT.


VETERAN F-86 SABRE PILOT


Yes, I was in the war.


EXT. OVER KOREA. DAY. (1953)


Two SABRES fly towards the sun setting in the west. Show title.


INT. BOEING 747. MIDDAY. (2003)


VETERAN is looking out of the window at the PACIFIC OCEAN below him en route to SOUTH KOREA. VETERAN beings to speak.


VETERAN


These skies resemble the ones I recall during my time in KOREA. I was a fighter pilot. I was a 1ST LT; the FLIGHT WINGMAN.


EXT. BOEING 747. MIDDAY.


VETERAN


I remember the end of World War II. I just entered high school at the time.


FLASHBACK TO:


EXT. SKY. DAY. (1944)


WWII-ERA planes are shown flying overhead.


VETERAN (NARRATIVE)


The war effort was tremendous and everybody wanted to do their part. That's when the doors to become a pilot opened for me. I enlisted. I always had an interest for aviation, loving the sight and sound of each rare plane that flew overhead many decades ago.


BACK TO PRESENT:


EXT. 747 APPROACHES LAND. AFTERNOON.


VETERAN


You're right. I've avoided returning to Korea for 50 years. I've lost my interest in flying.


FLASHBACK TO:


EXT. F-86 SABRE ON TARMAC. DAY. (1953)


The SABRE rests on the runway. The airfield is shown in front.


FLIGHT WINGMAN (VETERAN)


COMMANDER, the war's ending. This may be our last flight together.


VETERAN (NARRATIVE)


Actually; I hate flying now.


DISSOLVE TO:


INT. F-86 SABRE. DAY.


FLIGHT WINGMAN checks cockpit of his SABRE.


FLIGHT WINGMAN


Roger, cleared for takeoff.


FLIGHT WINGMAN begins to take off. He gains altitude to cruising altitude, following the FLIGHT LEAD (COMMANDER). The FINGER-FOUR FORMATION heads towards MIG ALLEY.


BACK TO PRESENT:


EXT. BOEING 747. AFTERNOON. (2003)


The 747 continues to INCHEON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. It flies over the KOREAN scenery.


VETERAN


Our last mission was in MIG ALLEY, a patrol. Other than the river separating the countries apart, there were no borders from up there. The mission was supposed to be kept a secret, as the MAJOR, our FLIGHT LEAD, chose us with that in mind.


INT. BOEING 747 COCKPIT. AFTERNOON.


The GAUGES are shown, and the BOEING 747 is shown to be cruising at 40,000 feet.


DISSOLVE TO:


INT. F-86 SABRE COCKPIT. LATE AFTERNOON. (1953)


GAUGES are shown, with FLIGHT LEAD in front of COCKPIT. FLIGHT LEAD disappears below the horizon.


FLIGHT WINGMAN


COMMANDER?


VETERAN (NARRATIVE)


I was his wingman, after all; I was supposed to support him.


F-86 SABRE turns around and heads to BASE.


VETERAN (NARRATIVE)


None of us noticed the '15 coming from behind. It disappeared with him. We had to RTB. I wasn't prepared, it's my fault.


EXT. AIRBASE. DAY.


SABRE lands with two others flying overhead.


BACK TO PRESENT:


EXT. BOEING 747. SUNSET. (2003)


BOEING 747 prepares to land, extending GEAR and FLAPS.


VETERAN


Then I knew how it feels to lose a buddy… a pilot. And all those other MIG pilots we killed. We didn't shoot them down, we killed them. He couldn't have been captured; we knew he was gone.


BOEING 747 lands. The camera pans around the scenery while above the airport.


FADE OUT.

I am aware the screenplay has flaws, I was not able to fix them with the HTML codes DeviantART allows.
A screenplay for an upcoming video, which will surely be on my Vimeo and YouTube channels.

Heh, thanks. Unfortunately, since school started, it will be a while. I got 40 seconds done before school though.
