In previous installments, Chuck and a friend hathe just met and gone off to test fly an airplane. They spotted what they thought was a downed airplane with a pilot in distress. Instead, they fell into the hands of Ivan Shark and his men.
After realizing that Chuck was missing, and retracing his last known steps, Captain Midnight is now certain that something serious is wrong. Has Chuck been kidnapped? Has mechanical trouble caused him to go down, and not be able to radio in?
As pilot friends meet, the scene is pieced together further. Sightings of Frank Crane, a blue plane in flight, and events that validate Chuck’s last appearance. Now all that’s left is to search rough country in the area spanning 70 miles. Is there any real assurance that Chuck and Frank are safe?
