'Howard Hughes nodded approvingly. "Mistu Kelly," he said. "You and yore buddy sure can fly. It's been a privilege, suh, to go up with you."' After being coerced into doing time in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Richard Kelly Browning decides the Mountie life is not for him and escapes via the Yukon and Chicago. Joining forces with compatriot Bluey Tait, he learns to fly and the two of them are contracted to work for Howard Hughes on his multi-million dollar blockbuster, Hell's Angels. The Hollywood life is more Dick's scene and life seems sweet for a while. But his past is just behind a palm tree and threatening to engulf him.
