Synopsis for Shining Knight: "The Flying Horse Swindle!"

A gang of swindlers take ordinary horses and dress them out to resemble the shining knights flying horse. Would be buyers pay thousands of dollars when they see the swindlers riding a low gliding horse with wings. Unbeknownst to them, the flying horse they see is fitted with fake wings that have detachable jet powered motors that allow the horse to glide for short distances. Buyers pay their money but they receive a horse with fake wings and no flying ability. One of the buyers has a wheelchair bound son. He purchases a horse from the swindlers in hopes that it will motivate his son to get better. Once the buyers bring their horses home they find that the wings are faked and the swindlers are long gone. The Shining Knight hears about the boys plight and shows up at his home with the real flying horse. Once the boy sees his hero and the real horse he jumps from his wheelchair and starts to run. He allows the boy and the father to take a ride around the city while he calls a local radio station. The shining knight reports that his flying horse is missing and it is broadcast over the radio. The swindlers hear the news as they observe the boy and his father circle the city in the flying horse. They immediately make plans to steal the real horse but the Shining Knight sets a trap and captures the band of swindlers.
