Phantom Falcons (II). “The Phantom Falcons–a gallant gang of misfit flyers–Jock Sturtevant, rich New York Sportsman, Ace Ely, holder of many air records, who has been turned down by the U.S. Air Force, and Peg Darnell, a girl who wants a man’s brand of glory.” They are joined by “John Lovelace, gallant sailor and airman,” and teenaged sailor Bud. Together they fly a group of Airacobras against the Japanese, operating out of a secret island base. Each plane has a falcon insignia on it, and Sturtevant, the leader of the group (he’s legless), owns pet hunting falcons. The Phantom Falcons (II) appear in stories with titles like “The Seizure of Island X.”
