A 12-episode serial in which Tailspin Tommy evades volcanoes, anti-aircraft shells, and time bombs as he foils a plan by corrupt profiteers to steal an island's oil reserves.
In the first episode, "Wreck of the Dirigible", Tommy is depicted as flying out to the airship in a Fleet model 2, s/n 374, registration NC792V. This same plane appears in Ace Drummond (1936), Sky Parade (1936), and Legion of Lost Flyers (1939).
Oh, boy, some landing, Tailspin - amd in the dark too!
In Chapter 5, "The Torrent", Garcia's plane is shown buzzing the base near tree-top level. But, in the next shot when he releases the bomb, the plane is hundreds of feet in the air, if not more.
