As a new pilot, he follows the deadly call of the Aluminum Trail. Follow him on his dangerous daily missions across the ocean from Indiana to India, then China where he rescues downed pilots, dodges air raids, delivers critical war supplies under fire, and finally steps out the door of his failing craft, "Able Queen," to become one of those in need of rescue.
