We start with a nature program that is watching the birth of an endangered condor. The condor cracks through the egg and asks for Momma who soon arrives. She then encourages the baby to do his first flight, which he crashes on twice. Soon the baby condor gets the hang of flying and earning the Nickname, Crash. and off Momma Condor and baby go with the nature show commentary narrating the action. Crash and His Mother fly through a thundercloud and Crash is lost. Cut to Tom chasing Jerry through the backyard passed a sleeping Spike. Tom corners Jerry and out of nowhere Crash lands on Tom. While Tom is dazed, Jerry rescues the Condor and the two become immediate friends.
Tom sees the Condor and thinks lunch! Tom rushes to capture Crash, but Jerry is there to retake the condor to the safety of a bush. Jerry then puts together a few twigs on his feet to leave a false trail that leads directly to Spike's dog house. Tom sees the trail and follows right to the dog house. He ends up capturing Spike in a turkey roasting pan, but Spike will have none of that and throws Tom and roaster lid into his dog house. Spike then smashes his dog house into a box and Tom pops out like a Jack-in-the-box. Jerry then helps the Crash learn to fly by placing him in a slingshot and sending him in the air. The condor gets the hang of flying again and picks up Jerry for a flight through the air. Tom makes a giant paper airplane and follows the pair, but after buzzing Spike's back while he is eating. The condor and Jerry elude the flying cat by flying him into a mailbox.
At this point, Crash is exhausted from flying and both he and Jerry land on top of a birdhouse. Tom, still hungry, brings a see-saw to base of the bird house and proceeds to throw a piano on the other end of the see-saw in the hopes that it will launch him up in the air to the bird house. Instead, the piano is catapulted toward Spike and his house. The piano lands on Spike and as Tom wonders how the piano got there, Spike's fist introduces itself to the top of Tom's head.
As Jerry and Crash fly around again, Tom is in hot pursuit in a bicycle umbrella contraction. Tom catches up to the flying pair and knocks Jerry off the Crash's back and then nets the condor. However, Momma condor show's up and breaks Tom flying thing and rescues her baby. Crash realizes that Jerry is falling from the sky and dives to his rescue while time floats down, with the help of umbrellas, and lands right on Spike's waiting hand. Spike straps Tom in a radio controlled plane and sends him off into the air. With Crash and His Mother reunited, Spike hands Jerry the controls to Tom's plane and continues to Torture the Kitten.
- When Tom was about to buzz Spike's back, his cap was missing.
