Aircraft workers in WWII love triangle?

The Golden Globes website (https://www.goldenglobes.com/film/wings-eagle) lists one of their nominees for Best Documentary in their 1977 awards (films of 1976) as Wings of an Eagle, with the plot description:

Aircraft workers during during [sic] World War II become involved in a love triangle.

I suspect that this is actually the plot description for a different film, rather than this documentary. But I can't think of which film it might be.

Does anyone know of a film (presumably fiction, not a documentary, and not necessarily from 1976) that satisfies that plot description? If it was nominated for a Golden Globe in any category, so much the better.

(The closest I've thought of so far is Swing Shift (1984), but perhaps there is some even more relevant film.)

mbmb: I think you are probably right that the Golden Globes used the plot outline for Wings for the Eagle (1942) by mistake. They even copied the "during during" error.

I also agree that Gifts of an Eagle (1975) a/k/a Wings of an Eagle is the documentary that they actually nominated.
