Return to Recap: The Smurfs.
Handy builds Flying Smurf the first airplane that he could fly, causing some trouble with Smurfette until she gets captured by Gargamel, and then he uses it to rescue her from the evil wizard.
Tropes associated with this story include:
- The Cameo: The shrunken Howlibird from "The Smurfs And The Howlibird" appears in this story in one panel.
- Did Not Get the Girl: Instead, Flying's "reward" for rescuing Smurfette is to help fix up the mess he's created with her house and her laundry!
- Wind-Up Key: The Aerosmurf requires a wind-up key to keep its motor functioning. As Flying Smurf and Smurfette are being chased by Gargamel, the motor of the Aerosmurf gives out, and Flying has to use the key to get the motor running again before he and Smurfette crash-land.
