- Back home to Glenn Martin flies a B-26 Marauder, battle-scarred and distinguished. Crews who returned with their planes took part in 150 missions against the Axis, shot down sixteen enemy fighters, sunk eight Axis surface ships, three submarines.
- De Havilland Mosquito daylight bombers chalk up one more score for versatility. Now in service as transports for the British Overseas Airways, the 400-mph bombers are speeding particularly urgent cargo, passengers, under sealed orders.
- It's an ill wind as frost-bitten ground crews prepare this Douglas C-47 Skytrain for transatlantic flight. Hot air steams up to the motors, engines roar in test. ATC in frigid Alaska is America's foremost link for our far-flung battlefields.
- The Martin Mariner builds its own sea lane, trailing clouds of spray landing at an east coast Naval Air Station. These twin-engine, gull-wing patrol bombers fly "Navy" on anti-submarine patrol, protect convoys, operate as carriers for NATS.
- A Patrol seaplane, Michigan Wing 63, is making a message pickup on the fly. Message is tied to a rope suspended between the poles held by men in the rowboat. A hook from the plane catches rope which hauls message into the cockpit.
- Turbaned French Spahis regiments guard North African airfields, strike up friendships with American and British airmen. In grinning sign language, a mountain Spahis wishes "Bon Voyage" to crew of an RAF Wellington before takeoff.
