||Industrialist Tex Calhoun is sponsoring a test flight, but has chosen another pilot to make the test instead of Airboy. But when he shows up late, heavily clothed and not wishing to speak to anyone or allow anyone near him, Airboy smells a rat, and checks his apartment, where Rick is found wounded. Airboy jumps in Birdie and heads out to chase down the pirated plane, flown by Rick's twin brother. He forces the pilot down and a long stand-off occurs before death finally wins out.
