It was based on the exploits of cross ocean flyers. Filming started June 1941.

Plot

Foreign correspondent Jim Montgomery agrees to quit his job when his fiancee Frankie threatens to return home to San Francisco without him, tired of his profession always coming first. He remains in Bombay, India for one more assignment, investigating a report of missing jewels. A mysterious man called Chundra continues to observe him.

With the case still unsolved, Jim and Frankie board a plane to Manila, unaware that the gems are aboard. A passenger is mysteriously killed, but not before the jewels are hidden in Frankie's case. George Lewis, another passenger, admits to being a courier for the diamonds, saying they are meant to be a gift to a foreign dignitary. Lewis, too, is then killed.

Montgomery encounters the culprit and is in danger of being thrown from the plane, but he is rescued by Chundra, who is actually a government agent. Frankie can't blame Jim this time for being in a hurry to get back to work and report the story.
