Storyline

In a woods in Maryland a hunter stumbles across an aircraft external cargo pod (from an F-14 Tomcat) containing the mummified body of a Naval officer and other objects; nine years earlier the victim disappeared from USS Dwight Eisenhower (CVN-69), aboard which carrier he had served as the disbursing officer, and from which ship 1.2 million dollars also disappeared. The NCIS team investigate aboard the ship and elsewhere; they find not only the sloppy work and faulty conclusions on the previous investigation but also the real thieves and killers, thereby providing emotional and financial benefits to both the widow and their daughter. Gibbs starts to have trouble with his eyes. Written by DocRushing

Great episode - really let the humor fly
5 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an outstanding episode in which the humor of the individual characters really started to come out - the very feature that differentiates this show from most other procedural shows - the true character formation. This episode was heavy on the military references

  • from the TFOA (things falling off aircraft) reports to the naming


conventions of ships in the navy - which the show departs from in season 2 according to producer Bellisario. This episode also introduces the fact that Gibbs doesn't feel the need to include NCIS agents in his investigation unless they are a part of HIS team. This is one of those qualities of Gibb's leadership that is fun to set his character apart but seems to be the nature of all of the procedural shows on television today.
