This short novel was originally published in the November, 1934, issue of Five Novels Magazine. It's nicely representative of the short-lived air-adventure genre, with plenty of red-blooded, two-fisted races and confrontations. The characters are more cardboard-stock than usual for Hubbard, and the heroine is annoying at times, but it's interesting from an historical perspective.

Fun pulp novel about test pilots at an air show. Whole lotta air crashes involved. Sure do hate the title, however.
