Though one would never know it from the title, Wings of Adventure is essentially a western. Rex Lease stars as aviator Dave Kent, who crash-lands in Mexico with his comedy-sidekick mechanic Skeets Smith (Clyde Cook). Here he is captured by a band of rebels, whose captain La Panthera is in love with heroine Maria (Armida). Begging Dave to rescue her from La Panthera's clutches, Maria leads our hero out of the bandit's headquarters, whereupon they board his repaired plane and fly off to the nearest U.S. Cavalry camp. This results in yet another crash, albeit one played for laughs by the ubiquitous Skeets Smith.
