I saw this film in 1938 (13 years old) and loved every minute of the aeronautical sequences; then I saw it twice more to compare those "flying machines" with the write-up in a national magazine that explained how they did it. Looking back, it was a production to gladden the heart of lovers of old airplanes (as I was and am!)Trivia point: according to the magazine article only the oldest plane (the one that crashed early in the movie) was not able to fly under its own power. All the others Paul Mantz (or his associate) flew. I'd love to have it on the shelf beside "Those Magnificent Men..." But it seems never to have been comitted to video. Isn't there one copy somewhere (Killiam?) that might be copied?
