Synopsis
WW2 ace Johnny Cloud "wakes" and finds he's a WW1 pilot flying a biplane to destroy a flak-tower bridge. But he's hounded by a German Albatross pilot who hammers his plane to pieces. Johnny falls to his death -- And wakes in WW2. It was a dream once seen in his childhood: death by albatross, a bird of ill omen. Johnny learns today's mission is the same: destroy a flak-tower bridge. And he's again hounded by an albatross-painted German plane! Again his plane is destroyed, but his parachute snags on the enemy plane. Shooting the pilot steers the plane to destroy the bridge!
