Experimental aircraft of several countries are mysteriously vanishing during test flights over the sea. The latest is British, and Hammond of the Secret Service, comical but competent, investigates undercover. Also interested is waitress Kay, a disguised reporter...and Hammond's sister. The government and plane manufacturer Barrett think the whole business is just coincidence, but the 'Viking,' ostensible salvage ship controlled by a Foreign Power, has much to do with it...

The test plane was an Airspeed AS.6 Envoy (not the AS.10 Oxford - note the much larger rectangular windows behind the distinctive cockpit windscreen). First flown in 1934, it served primarily as a transport and training aircraft during WWII. Several variants were made, the primary difference being the engines used. One was outfitted for use by the Royal Family. Production ceased in 1939 with only 52 being made. See more »
