Hold Everything Tommy! Here Goes Nothin'
As our adventure opens, a group of little boys and girls are listening to Tommy, who claims to be friends with World War One flying ace Brandy Rand. The airplane pilot hero is going to do flying tricks in his bi-plane at the county fair, and all the little kids are excited to see the flying hero. When the famous airplane pilot has problems with his parachute, little Tommy jumps on his bicycle and races to the spot where the flying hero is headed in his broken parachute.
Little Tommy rescues the flying hero when he lands in a lake, and the flying hero learns that little Tommy wants to become a famous airplane pilot just like him. Many years later, little Tommy is indeed a pilot, and a pilot who has invented a device that will help the Air Force drop bombs on enemy ships with pinpoint accuracy.
As the Military men watch, Tommy and his buddy Skeeter climb to 30,000 feet in their open cockpit airplane, sucking on oxygen coming to them through a rubber hose that they hold between their teeth. Suddenly, just as the bombs are going to drop from their airplane, the oxygen runs out and both men become unconscious, and the airplane begins to spiral out of control and race to the earth.
The airplane with the two unconscious pilots spirals downward and downward, and will soon crash to the earth, killing both pilots before they can get enough oxygen to awaken from their unconscious sleep. Just as our adventure is beginning, with military men watching, and three spies secretly watching from a nearby hill, Tailspin Tommy and his side-kick Skeeter are plunging to certain death. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
