Historically, albeit kaleidoscopically, Disney and Major Alexander P. de Seversky trace the progress of aviation in 65 snappy minutes, a combination of super-animation, all in color, plus Technicolored photography with the major himself participating.

It flashes back from the prophetic Gen. Billy Mitchell – to whom the film is dedicated – to 1903 when the Wright Bros first succeeded in lifting a heavier-than-air craft off the ground.

In cartoon and narration is traced the Luftwaffe’s exploits, plus the concluding arguments by de Seversky of how to beat Hitler in his Fortress Europa and how to overcome the Japs’ air-based advantages.

Disney and his battalion of artists, animators and backgrounders have not permitted the seriousness of the theme to completely dwarf their humor. There are the usual imaginative complement of Disneyisms in his cartoonics, and an excellent musical score to point it up.
