A cute story about a little helicopter (something very special in 1943). This little helicopter didn't like working and hatched a scheme to get out of work. The scheme went very bad, and a crash landing left the helicopter damaged and in pain. Patched up again, the little helicopter decides that work isn't so bad, and that he would perform safely and efficiently (as all helicopters do). Definitely a study in 1940's work ethics!
