Writer: Stuart Jerome - Director: Leon Benson

In this episode, while patrolling a desolate section of thick forest, a ranger calls Highway Patrol after he sees a small plane making what looked like a forced landing. Dan and Barney (Guy) arrive to find the plane empty with no sign of the ranger. That is, until they find his murdered body nearby. The plane's registration shows its owner to be a racketeer who took off from the city that morning with his wife and a private pilot. Dan and Barney catch up with them in a deserted resort settlement deep in the mountains, and uncover another crime that leads the officers back to the ranger's murder.
