The Osprey is a new experimental plane and was being test-flown by Flight Lieutenant Mike Gregory until his recent court-martial. Now Middle Eastern agents are using Mike to steal the plane, kidnapping his sister Diane. Having rescued Diane, the Saint goes after Mike, getting himself parachuted into unknown territory to fly the Osprey home.
