Synopsis for Federal Men: "Airborne Revenge"

Wealthy aircraft manufacturer Morton Brent is working on a new airplane for the U.S. government, and there have been threats. Steve Carson is assigned to protect him. Brent, Carson, and Brent's pilot fly towards Brent's Northern Estate, and are ambushed in mid-flight by an unmarked fighter plane. The propeller is disabled. Steve Carson crawls out onto one wing, walks along it, and waits for his chance. When the enemy plane gets close enough, he drops onto it, grabs a swivel machine gun, aims it at the pilot, and tells him where to land. Instead, the pilot throws a switch that causes his engine to catch fire, then jumps out, wearing a parachute. Carson jumps after him and catches him; they struggle, and the pistol-wielding pilot misses Steve, at very close range.

Brent's pilot meanwhile has managed a pancake landing. Carson and his foe land nearby, and the bad guy draws a bead on Morton Brent. Carson jumps him and grabs away his pistol. He identifies himself as Grayson and claims to be the real inventor of Brent's new model of airplane. Brent points a gun of his own at both of them, effectively proving Grayson's point, and takes a moment to explain how clever his plan is. Carson jumps him and while they're fighting, Brent's pilot has recovered his wits, and joins the fight on Carson's side. Carson has to fend off another murderous attack by Grayson on Brent, but Carson now holds the only gun on the scene, so Grayson and Brent are both under arrest.
