A chartered Learjet private aircraft, inbound from Washington, DC, crashes on a runway in predawn darkness at the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California, in the Los Angeles area; nobody aboard survives; the passengers were a retired vice admiral of the US Navy, erudite and outspoken, and a ghostwriter, Jason, for the admiral's tell-all memoirs; G and Kensi check out the airfield, and Sam chats with Nate. The NTSB investigators find no trace of the black box; G and Kensi meet Julie, Jason's girlfriend, and learn about the gutting of Jason's pad by fire; Eric and Nell announce bad news; Sam returns to work; Eric demonstrates some "serious voodoo", and he reveals why the bird crashed; the team set a trap, and they catch two bad guys; the team realize the enormous proportions of what's behind the mishap; Nate chats with Deeks also; Kensi and Deeks eat Chinese takeout food, but they do not watch a horror flick together.

Did You Know?


The storyline includes an interception of air traffic control radio transmissions, which was also a plot device in Day 7 of 24. In 24, however, the storyline encompassed the entire first arc and involved the "CIP (Classified Infrastructure Protocol) firewall device." In 24, the hijacking of radio transmissions is shown to be a massively difficult accomplishment that required the resources of an international conglomerate, an entire militia, and moles at the highest levels of the federal government, but in NCIS:LA, it is treated as an incident plot point.
