After winning 1st Prize at the National Model Plane Show with his entry: an exact copy of Airboy's plane, Birdie, he meets with a soldier friend of his and tells him about the Heap. Suddenly, a group of thugs interrupt and demand a package containing the Emmelman Pearls, the soldier is carrying for a friend of his. When Tom doesn't come across with it, they kill Tom and knock out Rickie. Rickie then uses his model of Birdie to locate the thugs, and when Rickie is captured and buried alive, Rickie uses Birdie to circle the area. The Heap sees it, saves the boy but takes the pearls.
