Synopsis
A new pilot joins Johnny's outfit. It's Silent Bear from the reservation, and a rival for Nurse Running Deer's love - and Johnny's better, he thinks. They're both shot down and captured by Nazis who plan to bomb the American radar station. Johnny and Silent Bear stage a revolt of the POWs, shoot free, and hijack a German plane - but Silent Bear is mortally wounded. Still, Johnny wedges him in the cockpit, and feels Silent Bear steering the plane, shooting down the bombers, and forcing Johnny to parachute out as the stricken plane crashes. He and Running Deer weep.

Synopsis
In WW1, twin brothers join a flying squad. But the CO transfers one out immediately. Everyone is superstitious about the brothers "sharing" adventures, and it seems true. Separated, they shoot down two planes at the same time, ditch, are even wounded and captured together. The German pilots taunt them, but they grab flare guns, fire the barracks, and escape in an idling plane. Flying together, they shoot up the squad and get home. Except, in hospital, one brother gets the nurse who kisses!
