  • War veteran pilots Dizzy Davis, Texas Clark and Jake Lee are working in an airline in Newark. Dizzy is flirting with the girlfriend of a younger pilot and, due to this, he feigns illness to get Texas to take his flight assignment to Cleveland. Returning from Cleveland to Newark, Texas' plane crashes attempting to land on the airfield under extremely bad weather circumstances and he dies from this accident. Dizzy feels guilty for his friend's death and takes the next flight to Cleveland under even worse circumstances, testing a new anti-ice device on the plane.

  • Trouble follows when "Dizzy" Davis, an experienced but irresponsible barnstormer, joins Federal Air Lines as a pilot, and, as a result of one of his selfish actions, a fellow-pilot crashes to death in a fog. After he learns that his license will not be renewed, "Dizzy" makes amends---in his own fashion.
