Jerry and Cass have always been competitive. Now that Cass is a well respected Naval aviator like his father, Jerry leaves the submarine service to become a flying cadet with Class 61 at Pensacola. During training, Jerry meets and falls for Cass's fiancée Irene. After air sickness, jitters and a crash landing, Jerry gets his wings. Cass is not as lucky as he is crippled in a crash and must retire. Cass designs a new fighter for the Navy as Jerry pilots flying boats in San Diego. Jerry will do anything to show Cass that he is a better pilot, even if it means leaving the Navy to test the experimental fighter that killed test pilot Steve Conners. Written by

The "experimental" plane Cass demonstrates to the Navy is actually a Grumman F3F fighter - the last biplane purchased by the U.S. Navy. It entered service in 1936 and was withdrawn from front-line service by the end of 1941 and transfered to training units. Only 147 were built. See more
