Wade, Rusty. Rusty Wade was created by Frank Richardson Pierce (Frying Pan Austin, CCC, Contact & Mile High, Greaseball DonovanHardrock, No-Shirt McGee, Flapjack Meehan, Panhandle Pete, Dad Simms, Tip) and appeared in eight stories and story serials in Air Trails (U.S.) in 1929 and 1930, beginning with “Talons of the Hawk” (Air Trails (U.S.), May 1929).

Rusty Wade is the “first air officer of the North,” an Alaskan aviator and freelance crime-fighter. He flies his Air Musher for commonplace passenger jobs and the aquatic Sea Scout for adventure. Wade takes on air robbers in Alaska, survives crashes, and captures master criminals, but his archenemy, the clever master thief Hawk Breed, continually eludes him.
