Two crooks steal two of Bascomb's vehicles - a car and a speedboat. When Bascomb resorts to a jet plane, he and Richie encounter a zeppelin in their path, and the culprits order them to land on the roof of the zeppelin. After following their orders, Richie questioned the thefts, but the victims are ordered to skydive to show how powerful the culprits are and to prove to Mr. Rich how powerless the victims are believed to be.
Richie acts as if he is bored over Freckles and Pee Wee showing off their cool stunts with their kites. The kids were having so much fun, they didn't give Richie a chance to show them his newest kite, shaped like a rocket.
