Many pilots die in air battles, and the survivors learn comeraderie. The "pompous ass" reforms, the cowboy falls in love with a local girl, one flyer gets shell shock, another flyer is accused of spying. A downed flyer gets caught behind enemy lines. In two final furious battles, they attack a zepplin and escort bombers on an important run.
