   damaged and its crew is injured, and the plane is scheduled
   to be dismantled. A Japanese Zero crash-lands near the
   base, and a woman survives, managing to make the men think
   they've captured secret plans. After the squadron has left
   to take advantage of the plans, the woman steals a gun and
   kills the radio operator. The crew of Madam X figures out
   what has happened, and leaves sick bay in a suicide mission
   to spring the ambush the Japanese have set up. On page 7, a
   Japanese radioman says, "Silver disks-- our greatest
   arsenal gone! Shoot down that plane at any cost!" The
   whiz-bomb shown in p. 1 does seem to be disc-shaped, though

Japanese Zeros.
   "The Flight of the Silver Saucers" (Captain Wings) 10 p. in
   Wings Comics, no. 112 (1950). -- Title from cover. --
   Though the art is substantially the same, this story is a
   thorough re-write of the Captain Wings story in Wings
   Comics, no. 53 (Jan. 1945), where it is signed "L. Elias."
   -- Summary: "Madam X" is a grounded bomber upon which
   "whiz-bombs" have been inappropriately mounted. It has been
   damaged and its crew is injured, and the plane is scheduled
   to be dismantled. A Japanese Zero crash-lands near the
   base, and a woman survives, managing to make the men think
   they've captured secret plans. After the squadron has left
   to take advantage of the plans, the woman steals a gun and
   kills the radio operator. The crew of Madam X figures out
   what has happened, and leaves sick bay in a suicide mission
   to spring the ambush the Japanese have set up. On page 7, a
   Japanese radioman says, "Silver disks-- our greatest
   arsenal gone! Shoot down that plane at any cost!" The
   whiz-bomb shown in p. 1 does seem to be disc-shaped, though
   from the title and cover art we would expect flying saucer
   UFOs. -- Call no.: PN6728.1.F5W5no.112
