As the bus carrying the gold shipments from Oro Grande is repeatedly robbed, the 3 Mesquiteers (John Wayne as Stony Brooke, Ray Corrigan as Tucson Smith, Max Terhune as Lullaby Joslin) suggest to the local goldmine's owner to fly the gold out by Ned Hoyt's (Anthony March) airplane services - a company the Mesquiteers have just recently bought half of, mainly because Stony has fallen for Hoyt's sister Beth (Louise Brooks). & the Mesquiteers even persuade the locals to buy shares of the airplane company for the good of the region, meaning that most of them sell large parts of their cattle for the company to buy a new airplane. This all is much to the dismay of Mullins (Gordon Hart), owner of the local bus company, who tries to sabotage the airline's success on every step of the way: first he tries to steal the cattle so the airline cannot afford the new plane. When the Mesquiteers successfully interfere though, Mullins has the plane hijacked, with Ned Hoyt himself, who pilots the plane, as a taylor-made prime suspect since he once served a prison term. But Hoyt still has an ace up his sleeve when he ejects the plane's fuel & lands it in the middle of nowhere. Now Mullins relies on his last joker card to discredit the airline, its communications coordinator Joe Wardell, secretly a spy for Mullins, to find the plane before the Mesquiteers do. But the Mesquiteers have already grown wise to Wardell, & by means of a shoot-out with the hijackers & Mullins' gang, clear Hoyt's name & that of the airline.

 

The concept sounds really nice, a war of airline vs busline fought by horseback-riding cowboys, & this very slick Western puts it on celluloid. Unfortunately, the film's undeniable qualities - for a mere series- or B-Western at least - are also its greatest faults. The film is just a tad too slick, thus too impersonal & without any edges to really provide much interest, making this little more than just another of these Mesquiteers-movies.
