At one point in the film, the gang (Bobby Jordan, Leo Gorcey, Ernest Morrison and others) are passengers in an old open phaeton (a four-door convertible) that is driving up to an airplane on the parking ramp. The driver is going a bit too fast and cuts the wheel too sharply, and the car flips over on its side. That was really an accident, not a stunt, as the scene is shot in one continuous take, and you can clearly see Gorcey's, Morrison's and Jordan's eyes widen and a terrified look on their faces as the car begins to tip over.

Loafing leader Leo Gorcey (as Muggs McGuiness) is unemployed, but Bobby Jordan (as Danny Graham), Donald Haines (as Skinny), David Gorcey (as Peewee), Bobby Stone (as Louie), and Ernest "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison (as Scruno) are figuratively "Flying Wild" with jobs at an aviation company. While at work, Mr. Jordan is recruited as a spy. Then, "The East Side Kids" get tangled up in a dangerous sabotage scheme. Soon, it will threaten to claim the life of an East Side Kid! - Don't miss the opening "car ride" to work; the car unexpectedly tips over on its side, after a sharp turn, and threatens to take the "real life" of several "East Side Kids". You may (not) want to hang in for the end "joke" (to see how a "black eye" might show up on Mr. Morrison's face).
