Storyline

A Marine Corps C-130 Hercules aircraft crashes while en route to Dover AFB, Delaware, while returning the remains of six Marines to the USA from Afghanistan; four more die; only one person, a crewmember, survives; Gibbs and company investigate the possibility of criminal activity. One father expresses much concern; Abby confirms the DNA of five of the KIAs, but she does not find the DNA of 1Lt. Gabriela Flores, who is said to be one of the six aboard the aircraft. A Navy woman chaplain, LCdr. Melinda Burke, enters and helps; the team learn about a civilian boyfriend from the USA in Afghanistan; the Marine unit unsuccessfully continue to search for Flores or her body. Ziva interprets a conversation in Pashto; Gibbs sees and pursues a small detail, and McGee reexamines satellite footage; the team see a trail, possibly that of Flores. The Commandant of the Marine Corps, a four-star general, gives Gibbs a direct order. [To be continued.] Written by DocRushing
