Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Stunt pilot Al Wilson is right in his element in the Universal actioner Three Miles Up. Wilson plays a former criminal who distinguishes himself as an air ace during WWI. Upon returning home, however, Wilson is unable to get a job, forcing him back into his old crooked ways. Hoping to escape his larcenous cronies, our hero fakes his own death in a parachute accident. The plan goes awry, and Wilson is nearly killed for real. Nursed back to health by the daughter of a former army officer who greatly admires Wilson, the young flyboy vows to go straight -- and he does.
