Storyline

An F-14 Tomcat crashes nearby while students watch from a school playground in California. While Harm investigates, he smells a cover-up; he eventually discovers both a second F-14 (previously undisclosed) and a civilian death on the ground (previously unknown); he finally gets some answers about the strange crash and the strange program. Harm negotiates a good settlement for the daughter of the civilian victim; he impresses both a blonde (his assistant in California) and a redhead (the daughter of the victim). Bud's anger-management course degenerates into a fight. Mac beats the general during an annual requal on a pistol range. Written by DocRushing
