A small plane crashes into the estate's tidal pool. Magnum saves the pilot, Sam Hunter. Hunter was delivering the plane from the mainland and can't help but wonder why he ran out of fuel. Magnum for some reason thinks he knows him but doesn't know where. Hunter returns to the mainland and everyone accuse him of fouling up but he maintains he didn't do anything wrong. He goes home to Texas for his son's birthday. Back in Hawaii someone breaks into the estate and looks for something inside the plane Magnum goes out and sees them and they shoot at him. Magnum finds that there are some lead bars in the plane. He then calls Hunter who tells him about the lead and the man he was delivering the plane to. It seems like the man involved in some shady business which prompts Hunter to go back to the airfield to confront the man he thinks placed the lead in the plane. Written by
