Not a Ghost of a Chance

27th of 30 episodes in Sunbow season 2. Written by Sharman Di Vono. First aired November 13, 1986.









Previous episode: Second-Hand Emotions
Next episode: Sins of Our Fathers

The Joes mount a rescue mission to find two downed pilots whose experimental Ghost plane was shot down. Hector Ramirez airs a live interview with Joes and Cobras, debating whether Cobra was responsible for the incident. Meanwhile, a Cobra sub and a Joe Tomahawk each conduct their own searches for the pilots. During the search, Flint struggles with jealousy over the fact that one of the pilots is a long-time friend of Lady Jaye.

Cobra lands BATs on the pilots' island, and their radio signals draw the Joe search team. As the Joes work to rescue the pilots, Cobra attacks a second prototype Ghost plane, exposing their involvement since the plane is being filmed for Ramirez's TV program.
