"Killed while exercising his love for speed in a racing car, millionaire John Archibald Pump leaves behind ten US million dollars (a staggeringly large sum in 1951, equivalent to US$93,219,600 in 2014). It will go to the builders of the first aeroplane to fly from Paris to New York at 1000 kilometres per hour. Jo and Zette's father sets about designing such a plane, but the project comes under threat from a gang of saboteurs led by William and Fred Stockrise, Pump's passed-over nephews who will only inherit if the ship is not completed within the year after the reading of the will, who go to all lengths, from theft to bombing, to prevent it. When the Stratoship H.22, designed by their father, is the subject of an attempted bombing from the air, Jo and Zette fly it out of its hangar but are unable to get back. Crash-landing near the North Pole they face a race against time to get the plane back home and win the trans-Atlantic challenge. But the Stockrise brothers and their gang are still determined to thwart the operation even if Jo and Zette successfully make it home."--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jo,_Zette_and_Jocko, viewed 12/4/2014.
