He didn’t survive the crash

“You’re the boss.”

“When we see them, we’ll drop down close to the water,” Wiggins said, “That will give them less time to prepare for an attack.”

“This is FUN,” Mac cracked, “Are you having fun, Joey?”

“Oh YEAH!”

“Seasick, Joey?” Mac asked.

“Nope,” he replied.

“I think I hear a jet airplane,” Mac observed, “What damn-fool would be flying in this weather?”

“Radar detects two,” Rachel at the helm reported, “Heading our way—FAST!”

“Time to break-out your anti-aircraft fifty-caliber AA guns, One-Eye!”

“Dammit, Mac—I forgot to bring them!”

Season 17—Adventure 3—SCRAMBLE!—Episode 8—Scene 1… An angry Lake Superior… Wiggins’ attack didn’t go well—Thomas flew directly into a wave as he was flying too low.

He didn’t survive the crash.

Wiggins could not get a clear shot at the boat, as his airplane was buffeted too much by the wind—he wisely headed back towards home.

Mr. Wiggins was not prone to prayer—he made an exception today.

Prayers usually don’t include swearing—his did.

Unlike his late wingman, Wiggins was an excellent pilot and arrived safely back at his airport.

He called his remaining pilots into a meeting, “Gentlemen, we lost Mr. Thomas due to extreme stupidity. This being the case—we will immediately resume our training—with an emphasis on all-weather flying. Suit-up. We take off in a half-hour.

Episode 8—Scene 2… At Silverthorn’s Harbor Café… Debra, Collie, Chris, and Wyatt all had a hankering for food and arrived at the café within minutes of one-another. They also felt a need—and hope for Mac & Joey’s safe return from their fishing trip.

“Any word?” Chris asked.

“Not yet,” Danielle Silverthorn replied, “But, with Captain Farkleberry, they’re in the best possible hands.”

“Yeah,” Wyatt was still very concerned, “When Superior gets angry…”

“Mr. Earp—there is NO better captain on the lake.”

“Yes Ma’am!”

Episode 8—Scene 3… On Angry Lake Superior…Then here’s to the sailor,
And here’s to the soldier, too, Hearts will beat for him Upon the waters blue. Sailing, sailing, Over the bounding main…
” Mac broke into song. He really COULD sing—who knew?

Joey joined-in—fortunately Boomer was nearly a hundred miles away—and couldn’t chime-in, off-key.

“You two are either scared out of your minds—or you’re having a blast in this squall.”

“Having a blast, Braddock,” Mac replied, “Considering everything we’ve experienced on our adventures—this IS fun!”

THAT might change…

    Well, at least they are safe for the moment. Perhaps Wyatt has reason to worry that has nothing to do with a good captain.
