Storyline

Aboard Air Force One a Naval officer dies after eating with the POTUS. After an unscheduled stop in Wichita, agents of the FBI, NCIS, and Secret Service all compete to control the investigation. The NCIS agents win, and they and the body return to Washington aboard a presidential 747. Then, in Georgetown, a Marine Corps officer also dies in the same way. Abby discovers both the cause of the deaths and the manner of the delivery of the lethal substance. Gibbs flies with Kate, a Secret Service agent, to the West Coast, then rides the alternate Air Force One back to Washington. During the return flight Gibbs thwarts an attempt to assassinate the POTUS. Kate resigns from the Secret Service, and Gibbs gives Kate an implied job offer. Written by DocRushing

Best episode out of ten seasons
30 July 2013 | by aircanada787See all my reviews

I have watched every episode of every season including the tenth. Kate is definitely my favourite character but I think Bellisaro was extremely ingenious in introducing how the team operates. This is by far the most hilarious NCIS episode I have ever seen and I love it. I just wish Sasha Alexander stayed on for a little while longer. This episode has Ducky acting as boss and when the FBI tries to take over the crime scene (air force one) Tony closes the door on them. There is a secret service agent on board and she is ordered to give the FBI the body when they land, so Gibbs tricks them all and puts TONY in the body bag. That is the most hilarious thing I have ever seen. If you haven't seen it, you MUST, it's the best then watch season 1 and 2.
