The Adventure Girls in the Air by Clair Blank

The airplane circled low over the shore, its motor a loud humming noise. The begoggled head of the pilot peered over the side at the little group of people on the beach as he sent his plane zooming up again.
"Must be from the Army field below here," vouchsafed one sunburned young man, raising himself on one elbow to peer up at the plane.
"It isn't an Army plane though," another added.
"He must be trying to smash himself up as quickly as possible," declared Carol Carter.
The other five girls and three boys present agreed heartily with her.
The plane, its engine roaring, dove straight for the blue waters of the Atlantic, only to zoom upward again when the waves threatened to engulf it.
The young people, when nothing happened, turned their attention to something else. Airplanes were familiar to them.
"How did you make out in your English exam today?" Carol asked her friend, Janet Gordon.
The girl in the bright red bathing suit made a wry face and sighed. "I believe I established a new record for low marks."
"But you don't want to flunk in anything this term!" Phyllis Elton said aghast. "It is your Senior year!"
"You won't be eligible for the college exams if you do," added Valerie Wallace.
"I'll make it up," Janet said confidently, as usual not letting anything worry her.
"Have you decided what college you are going to?" Bruce Latimer asked as he let a handful of sand trickle slowly down Gale Howard's back.
She wriggled away from him. "I like Briarhurst," she answered.
"That is where we all want to go," supplied Madge Reynolds. "Do you think you can make it, Phyllis?"
Phyllis Elton looked at the blue water lapping the shore and a little sigh escaped her.
"I don't know," she said slowly. "I want to, more than anything - but my Aunt - - "
The others knew Phyllis' life was governed completely by her Aunt's whims and commands. Since babyhood Phyllis had lived alone in a big stone house with Miss Fields. Her friends were not allowed to visit her, nor she them if her Aunt knew it. However, when Phyllis had started High School she became chums with the Adventure Girls and now every moment she could get away from the big house was spent with one or the other of them.
