This is another in a string of aircraft themed films starring old stone face Richard Dix. In this one Dix plays an ex-Marine flier who has been court-martial ed for cowardice and thrown out of the service. He joins a group of pilots who are hired to test a new bomber. Four pilots are killed before Dix comes in and saves the day. He of course finds time to win the hand of the aircraft builder's daughter and clear his name as well. It is the standard plot of the times with nothing new added. There is however quite a lot of excellent aircraft footage which makes the film a keeper for the aircraft buff. The director, E.C Kenton was best known for doing several of the FRANKENSTIEN sequels made in the 1940's. It is a quite watchable time-waster and just right for a rainy day off. (b/w)
