Real-life stunt pilot Al Wilson heads the cast of the aerial melodrama The Flying Mail. Hero Wilson gets into trouble early in proceedings when he's convinced by the crooks that he's gotten married while under the influence of a powerful drug. It's all part of a scheme to keep him grounded while his mail plane is used as a getaway vehicle for a robbery. With the help of heroine Carmelita Geraghty and comic-relief detective Eddie Gribbon, Wilson proves that he's not wed to gun moll Kathleen Myers and that he's been set up as a fall guy by criminal mastermind Harry von Meter. The nail-biting climax finds Wilson and Von Meter duking it out while both are parachuting to earth.
