Show synopsis THE BABY RACER That was the name of the new vehicle. And the Baby Racer would propel Dave Dashaway into an exciting new adventure! Dave Dashaway was a young pilot in the exciting first years of aviation in the early twentieth century when most things that flew with a motor were biplanes. When his father, a noted balloonist, died a mean old skinflint named Silas Warner had been appointed his guardian. Despite Silas Warner's machinations, Dave's natural love for aeronautics won out, and he'd already had adventures on his way to becoming a well-known pilot. Hiram Dobbs was Dave's friend. Together the two would have an even more exciting adventure with hydroplanes on the Great Lakes. It started with a fateful telegram. And then a plane was stolen! But the crooks were in a plot far bigger than just plane theft. Would the next landing for Dave Dashaway be a watery grave? Roy Rockwood, king of early boys' adventures, delivers an exciting tale of early American aviation.
