At the start of the film when the airliner is shown crashing the model is of a conventional small twin-engined airliner. In the live action shots after the crash it has the unusual twin horizontal tail structures supported by several vertical surfaces of the Capelis XC-12, also used in Five Came Back (1939). See more »

I like Tom Conway as The Falcon, and this was a very good mystery. What was annoying was the presence of The Falcon's southern fiancée, who never shut up through the whole picture, even during crucial moments. Hard to believe that such a sophisticated character as the Falcon would have put up with her for more than five minutes.
The rest of the movie is actually quite good and a neat mystery about money and people disappearing out of a flying plane. There's a very funny roller-skating scene, funny because of the way it was filmed. The Falcon on roller skates? Who would have believed it? Despite its shortcomings, it's an entertaining movie if you can ignore that fiancé.
