This archaic British flagwaver concerns the trials and tribulations of fearless young aviator Ben Whitford (Robin Irvine). When the plans to Ben's new airplane-stabilizing device are stolen by spies, it looks as if he'll never be able to "prove" himself in the eyes of his grey-haired mother (Ellaline Terriss). It is up to Ben's sweetheart Jane (Enid Stamp Taylor) to outwit the spies and retrieve the plans. Our hero then takes to the air and demonstrates the efficiency of his amazing new invention, impressing the world in general and his dear old mum in particular. No wonder that British audiences preferred American films to their own home-grown product.
