Caitlin is travelling by train back to Santini Air, and bumps into two CIA men escorting Ramon and Elena Martinez, the children of the President of San Pedro.

A week of violent storms and torrential rain has hit the remote mountain region known as ‘Manitou Wilderness’. Hawke has been mobilized in ‘Airwolf’ to clear fallen trees that have dammed up a mountain crater lake, threatening to overspill and flood surrounding towns.

Conley is kidnapped, by coincidence from the restaurant Hawke, Santini and Caitlin are at, and they take Joseph into protection. The kidnapper is freelance spy Boris Fladjek, and Hawke tracks them in ‘Airwolf’ to a mountain hideaway. Things hot up when American force and Mafia helicopters arrive on the scene…
