Storyline

Mac is not amused when Peter fixes the Phoenix Foundation flight simulator to crash just before he actually takes a bunch of troubled youths camping by airplane, without any budget. Their regular counselor takes reinforcements as an insult and splits; Mac wins some respect by his ingenious bush cooking skills. The pilot who is returning the party a few days later gets a heart attack, so they crash in the wilderness. The rebellious ruffians (3 guys and one girl) prove quite a handful to get out of trouble - most of which they keep creating - even with macgyverisms, but a serious grudge between gang leaders and a medical emergency really push Mac's resourcefulness to the limit, but at least now they all pull together...

Goofs

The piece of fabric that rips of of Tommy's coat that sticks to the tree branch is in a different position when MacGyver comes across it later. When it is first shown, it is snugged securely between a crack in the branch. When MacGyver finds it, it is more or less just resting on top of the branch. See more »
