Robert Flash Norris (Ray Walker) is his company's best pilot, but his
reckless behavious both in the air and on ground eventually gets too much
for his boss Skip (Gabby Hayes), so he can't but fire him. Flash's
girlfriend Lila (Kathryn Crawford) though sees to it that Flash gets a job
in her daddy's (Claude Gillingwater) bank ... but even there he messes up
time and again and soon is on the brink of being fired.
Flash teams up with Skip again, and the two want to turn Skip's company
into a postal service - but would need some financial aide from the bank,
and Lila's dad refuses to give it to them. His vice president Baker (Jed
Prouty) though is more than willing to dish out the money, then hops onto
a boat to South America ... while Lila's dad and his men realize large
chunks of money have been embezzled, and the one logical suspect is Flash,
who suddenly has way more money than he is supposed to have, and he has no
proof he got it from Baker.
Being the prime suspect of a crime like
this, Flash jumps aboard the next amphibian airplane and soon enough, he
catches up with Baker's cruise ship, picks him from board and returns home
with him to hand him over to justice and secure himself financing for the
new postal plane company. Oh, and he gets the girl, too.
average B-melodrama in which the many shots of vintage airplanes are far
more interesting than the actual plot.
