Storyline

When Mac gets home, it's emptied, not by burglars, far worse: trade mark Jack Dalton, his college mate -musketeers with a girl called Mike-, now an independent pilot, who incorrigibly pulls pranks on practical jokes in bad taste but swears this time he's medically terminal, and wants to do one last good deed: save US botanists involved in his firm Fly-by-night's orchid trade, in Central American (ficticious) Dinoto. Only when they have landed Mac is told that Mike is the botanist, the police of colonel Antunnez and his US cahoot Sonny their heavily armed adversaries, because even Jack refused to be abused for the heroine smuggle...
