Storyline

Two park rangers find the burned body of LCdr. Brad Sayers, a Navy test pilot on leave, on the site of a recent fire in a forest in the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia; Gibbs and company investigate; McGee sees evidence that Brad tried to fly a jetpack, and that it exploded. Gibbs places McGeek in charge. Palmer finds clues inside a dead squirrel, and Abby confirms them. Tony and Ziva interview a builder of jetpacks, and Ziva snaps a portrait; McGee learns about the builder's ex-wife, who's also the builder's top competitor; McGee questions the builder, then the builder's high-power lawyer shows up, starts talking, and keeps on talking. Ducky suggests an interesting alternate explanation, then Gibbs shows a piece of paper. The gang put the pieces together, and Tony brings in the bad guy by remote control. Gibbs notices the left hand of the lady lawyer; he concludes that someone else sent her there. Written by DocRushing

Trivia

When McGee's jet pack video is over, we see that it is a "Thom E. Gemcity" production. This is an anagram for Timothy McGee, which is his pseudonym as a writer. See more »

Goofs

When discussing the propellants used by the jet-pack, McGee states that the use of Hydrogen Peroxide and Kerosene as fuels is highly unusual. This mix of fuels was used extensively by the British between 1955 and 1971 for a number of very successful rockets, culminating in the Black Arrow space launch vehicle. See more »

Technology interesting, about time McGees character had more

active part in story line. McGee is in total error about 1 having to possess delicate hand coordination to maintain level flight with a Jet Pack, no more difficult than maintaining a steady speed operating a motor cycle, snow mobile, or a jet ski, actually more simple considering there are far less obstacles to get in your way. Victor Tillman's opinion about controlling the pack with a fly by wire remote is impractical, considering who would want someone else doing the flying for them, unless the pilot/passenger is incapacitated and incapable of control. Other than those points it was a fairly entertaining episode.
