"Mail Pilot" (1933) - Mickey Gets A New Prop (12 of 20)

As a pilot, I tended to pick up items with an aerospace theme. The 1933 film "Mail Pilot" caught my attention and I ended picking up a number of items from the film. I thought I share the group with you.

This is a really great image and a great gag... Mickey looses his propeller and the airplane heads for the ground. Just before the crash, Mickey runs into a windmill and the windmill blades become his new prop! I seem to recall several other cartoons (other than Disney) that have used this gag in one form or another. In looking at the image again, I'm not sure what Mickey did to replace the missing wings!

Nice doodles on the page!
