With young Timmy Blake as the main character, the author describes the thrills of a pleasure trip on one of the world's largest airliners. Against an interesting narrative background presenting both passengers and crew of the Clipper, a full description is given of the pilots' cabin, the chart room, galley, and other features of the ship's three decks.
The author has verified all the details in her drawings of the clipper ship's construction, as well as all the technical facts contained in the narrative. These facts and details have been gone over further by the Flight Steward of Pan American Airways.
