Here's a few that might be of interest:

TOO HOT TO HANDLE, with Clark Gable (set in Shanghai under Japanese
bombardment)

TEST PILOT, also with Gable

The last is based on a story by Frank "Spig" Wead (himself played by
John Wayne in THE WINGS OF EAGLES (1957).  Wead wrote a number of
screenplays in the 1930s that may be of use--check the IMDB for a
complete list.

Also:
DEVIL DOGS OF THE AIR (1935)
SKY DEVILS (1932)
Laurel and Hardy in FLYING DEUCES (1939)
Two versions of THE DAWN PATROL (1930 and 1939)
