Flying into action, daredevil photojournalist Johnny Brice is always looking for trouble... and more often than not, finding it. But he doesn’t know what real trouble is until he rescues the beautiful woman he calls Jinx from a sinking ship. Like Bogie and Bacall, they’re made for each other - even if they are a dangerous mix.
Get the picture? Well, Johnny always does. The problem is, with Jinx now in the picture, all his photo-scoops are going down the drain - losing his film to water, fire, or war. And it all comes to a head on assignment in China, when the Japanese shoot his plane down and take Jinx and Johnny prisoner.
Their lives at risk, it’s time for Johnny to get the real story about the lady. Is she really a jinx... or something even more sinister? In an adventure full of surprising discoveries, getting at the truth leads to the most shocking twist of all.
L. Ron Hubbard had first-hand experience of flying high with Trouble on His Wings. As a young aviator, he loved to tempt danger. One journalist wrote: “The flaming-haired pilot hit the city like a tornado a few years ago... He just dared the ground to come up and hit him.” The knowledge and insight he gained during those flights is clearly evident in his aerial adventure stories.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
You know I really felt the fear, and adventure, when he landed in the ocean with a parachute, and again battling the forest fire! It was just fantastic.
Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes they are fantastic, just like the old Radio drama's. I almost feel spoiled because the performances is are just so good.
