Locals celebrate Wild River, a ghost town, as a fundraiser to restore it. But they're still short of funds. A man offers $2500 for a "sunburst", a legendary flower from Sky Peaks where eagles roost. Rex and Danny and a brave girl take the challenge. Rex fights off a horse stampede, a mountain goat, and an eagle, and finds a "pretty flower" for the girl's hair. "He's saved the ghost town!"

Synopsis:
Bobo's latest craze is flying airplanes. He even has a small parachute and aviator's helmet. He goes flying with his elderly friend, but the man dies - in mid-air! Bobo scrabbles at the plane wreckage and flees a killer, even leaping off a tower with his parachute, until the Sheriff finds a trick gun rigged in the plane to go off with a hair trigger. A neighboring farmer rigged the death to get the airport land for his farm. And Bobo wonders if he can get a pilot's license!
