Billed as a "Universal Thrill Feature," this airborne action melodrama featured real-life aviator Al Wilson playing identical flying twins. "Sky High" Saunders is searching for his twin brother, Michael, whom he suspects has joined a gang of smugglers. After saving pert schoolmarm Helen Leland (Elsie Tarron) from gang leader Delatour (Bud Osborne), Sky High goes after the gang but accidentally shoots down his brother Michael's plane, killings the occupants. Pretending to be Michael, Sky High keeps a rendezvous with the gang and manages to dynamite their mountain stronghold. Leading lady Elsie Tarron was a former Mack Sennett Bathing Beauty and the wife of slapstick comic Andy Clyde.
