Synopsis:
A wealthy Baron brings a young engineer to Africa to re-build an exact copy of the Baron's old airfield in Frankfort, Germany, in an effort of showing up Baron von Emmelman, a pilot considered over-rated by Helnar. The engineer learns of the Baron's hobby: dog-fighting with his friends in ancient aircraft using dummy ammo, and wonders what part that The Heap played in Helnar's death.
