The stalemate at Widow's Peak was unchanged when the Highway Patrol helicopter arrived at the scene. It was obvious that the copter offered the fastest means of rescuing Jerry Watts, but it also presented a perfect target for the kidnappers. It would take time, too much time, to force the kidnappers out of that shack, and the boy was closer to death with every passing second. His condition had to be determined before any rescue plans could be made.

Two kidnappers are holed up in an abandoned hunting shack. They kidnapped the adult son of a wealthy family and are holding him for $50,000 ransom. A Game Warden becomes suspicious and phones the Highway Patrol. The shack is in an isolated area over 200 miles from Patrol headquarters. To make matters worse, the kidnap victim was shot in the back while trying to escape and the two culprits with rifles prevent the patrol officers from getting the victim to the nearby helicopter. This episode, as the title indicates, is all about law enforcement's use of helicopters. Whoever was piloting the helicopter was very skilled as there's an amazing scene where the helicopter is used to collapse the dilapidated shack. It was nice seeing Robert Bice as the Game Warden - he appeared in a couple of Perry Mason shows as one of the detectives in the Paul Drake Detective Agency. A solid if not particularly memorable episode.
