Synopsis 1:
A pilot's wife and lover plant a bomb in the husband's plane.
Synopsis 2:
A light aeroplane comes down over Kent and crashes killing the pilot.
It is found that the pilot was murdered, and Scotland Yard become
involved. It appears that a man, who is infact the killer, went to
an old lady's house, and was treated by a local nurse for his injuries.
The pilot was the husband of an actress, the actress was having an
affair with her co-star. When the killer ejected from the plane he
sustained injuries to his leg which is in plaster. This is a giveaway
to Inspector Hammond who arrests them both for murder as they plan
their getaway. [TH]
