We haven't gone to war yet and the kids are slightly too young for the armed services, but that doesn't mean the East Side Kids can't do their bit for the USA. They've gotten jobs at an aircraft factory and the closest to New York in those days was Farmingdale in Long Island where presumably this takes place in Flying Wild.
Before long the boys suspect enemy spies are at work stealing our aviation secrets and it's up to the East Side Kids to put a stop to them. Leo Gorcey suspects plant doctor George Pembroke of being head spy. He has to be because he shooed the kids away from his flying ambulance plane so therefore he's a meanie. That he happens to be the spy is just a bonus and its only the kids who figure it out.
Flying Wild is a pretty dated World War II era propaganda film. But believe me there would be better or worse to come depending on your point of view. Sometimes I don't think we'd have won the war without the East Side Kids and their home front efforts.
