A bomb explodes in the apartment of a Navy lieutenant (junior grade), Keith, while he's not at home; the building manager dies; Gibbs and company investigate. Keith washed out of flight training and now serves at the Pentagon. Gibbs talks with Keith's CO; Abby says that Keith built the bomb. McGoo has a problem, but Vance takes care of it in two different ways. Vera, a retiring agent and an interesting person, works her last two weeks with the Gibbs gang. Tony and Vera check out the source of the explosive, who refers them to a local contractor, who reacts in a squirrelly way, but who reveals an important fact. Abby identifies a plastic blob; Tony and McGee elaborate; Tony traces Keith to an airport. Everyone shifts into overdrive to find Keith; McGeek proposes a technique, and Abby helps to implement it; soon the team and others track Keith in a rented private light aircraft. Gibbs speaks with Keith, who changes his plan and ends his flight.

The pilot is shown with a dead man's switch taped to his hand. This would not be possible as a pilot needs both hands to fly the plane. One on the stick or yoke the other for the throttle.
Most planes have some type of throttle lock or friction lever that allows the throttle to be held in place without the need to keep your hand on it. See more
