The downed pilots, Major Steel, and Bud Connely have been mostly nursed back to health but still are in dire need of medical attention due to their jungle fever. Unless the wind changes, the airplanes may not be able to take off again anytime soon. In the meantime, Captain Midnight share the recent good news of Ivan Sharks defeat, but there’s bad news to tell as well. Shark may have been defeated, but he has escaped and is still on the loose. There’s more good news, Shark has been spotted, and our heros know which direction he is headed. But there’s bad news too, he is making a beeline right to the United States.
Besides the critical medical need, the urgency to take off is greater. Can our heros lighten the load in their airplane enough to take off? Will they have to wait for the wind to shift before they can take off?
