Experimental aircraft of several countries are mysteriously vanishing during test flights over the sea. The latest is British, and Hammond of the Secret Service, comical but competent, investigates undercover. Also interested is waitress Kay, a disguised reporter, and Hammond's sister. The government and plane manufacturer Barrett think the whole business is just coincidence, but the "Viking", ostensible salvage ship controlled by a foreign power, has much to do with it.Written by

The test plane was an Airspeed AS 6 Envoy (not the AS 10 Oxford, note the much larger rectangular windows behind the distinctive cockpit windshield). First flown in 1934, it served primarily as a transport and training aircraft during World War II. Several variants were made, the primary difference being the engines used. One was outfitted for use by the Royal Family. Production ceased in 1939 with only fifty-two being made. See more »
When Tony mans the machine gun, he sprays the enemy crew with gunfire. Some of the crew are right in front of the plane, so the plane should be riddled with bullet holes, but no bullet holes can be seen. See more »
Experimental craft are disappearing. Why? Because villain uses a ray to disable the craft, then captures craft and crew intact. There must be half a dozen Bond films with this plot. The villian's henchmen are also very much in the Bond mold - running all over the ship like so many ants in an ant colony. Only difference is that these henchmen are more realistic; they are harder to kill, and are better shots.
