Synopsis

Helen Brooks, a registered nurse training to be an airline stewardess, is rejected as a stewardess by the dean of the hostess school, Hal Cunningham. To prove herself, Helen executes an unauthorized 5,000-foot jump out of an airplane. Later, Helen begins a romance with flier Jimmy Edwards, and Hal rivals him for her affection. Helen and her friends graduate, and she and Jimmy become engaged, but Jimmy wants her to forfeit her career to be his wife. She insists on becoming a stewardess and is assigned to his plane. One day during a fog-plagued passenger flight, three gunmen attack pilots Jimmy and Joe Williams and knock them out. Helen radios Hal and he gives her step-by-step directions on how to land the plane. Helen is awarded a medal and also wins Jimmy for a husband.
