Storyline

Several American military aircraft have been attacked in the East by 'the Ghost Plane', believed to belong to the Chinese and which flies at an almost impossible speed. A newspaper cutting provides the Champions with a lead that takes them from an Alpine ski resort to a Cambridge laboratory, the workplace of Dr. Newman, an aircraft designer whose plans for a high speed plane were shelved by the British and who is now selling them to the Chinese. Sharron discovers that the components are being shipped out disguised as car parts and will be sufficient to make two hundred and fifty Ghost Planes. She is caught and locked in a freezer from where she must exercise her telepathic powers to alert her fellow Champions to her plight and the progress of the aircraft. Written by don @ minifie-1

Solid episode with a good international feel
17 June 2017 | by (Glendale, CA) – See all my reviews

The Champions was quite different from most ITC series in that our heroes were agents of an international espionage-type organization, which in theory could take them anywhere in the world. Thus the focus was broader than just Great Britain, though many good episodes are set in England. I think Department S was more UK-oriented.

Here, as other reviewers note, we are indeed globe-trotting with our heroes, which is always fun. Sure the various locales have to be presented by stock footage, but that works fine. This was quite an ambitious episode for the series. Plus, the balance of action scenes, and interactions among the main trio, are good.
