It’s not easy being Jane.
In this outing we start with Cheeta and her ape pals finding an old cigarette case that piques Jane’s curiosity and has her sending them back into the jungle to where they found it. They find the remains of a crashed airplane and its skeletonized pilot as well as a journal belonging to a famous aviatrix named Gloria James (Evelyn Ankers) who went missing over twenty years ago. The journal reveals that the plane had run into bad weather and was icing up badly (icing up over the jungles of Africa?) and Gloria had decided to bail out while her co-pilot decided to take his chances with the plane.
