Summary
Waldo Pepper, a young pilot back from World War I, is barnstorming his way across the Midwest. Taking on rival after rival, Waldo meets his match in Axel, an air-show promoter. Together, with acrobatic Mary Beth, they take air showmanship to great heights. Eventually landing in Hollywood as a stunt pilot, Waldo finally meets up with the legendary German pilot Ernst Kessler, leading to a climatic airborne fight to the finish
