The Three Mosquitoes: The Wizard Ace

By Ralph Oppenheim

The Three Mosquitoes: The Wizard AceTheir familiar war cry rings out: “Let’s Go!” And the greatest fighting war-birds on the Western Front are once again roaring into action – The Three Mosquitoes! Flying in their usual close V, the three khaki colored spads were piloted by U.S. Intelligence’s finest. In the lead Spad was their impetuous young leader Kirby, while flanking him were “Shorty” Carn, the mild eyed, corpulent little Mosquito and lanky Travis, eldest and wisest of the trio. These three men were always raring for action, always recklessly anxious to go out and match thier wings against any odds! Although Ralph Oppenheim had never had a flying lesson, he created one of the longest running aviation series to grace the pages of Popular Publications. The Three Mosquitoes flew for twelve years, through nine different magazines in over five dozen stories! Here we present a trio of 1933 Mosquito adventures from Dare-Devil Aces:

  • “The Wizard Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, January 1933
  • “The Cannonball Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, April 1933
  • “The Midnight Ace” – Dare-Devil Aces, August 1933
