Back from the Navy after WW2, Mike Gilroy and his partners, Della and Todd Abbin, are planning on expanding their airline in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Mike's girlfriend, Beth Ross, joins them when she is discharged from the Royal Navy in Kingston, Jamaica. As a beginning they buy a war surplus C-47 and charter it to a Venezuelan oil company. The plane is stolen in the wilds of southern Venezuela. Mike learns the leader of the thieves is a wanted Nazi war criminal who will stop at nothing to protect what he considers his property, be it airplane, cocaine fields or wife. The local police and the army are helping the Nazi with his plans. The chances of Mike and his friends getting their plane back are slim to none.
