Synopsis
Steve Canyon and Tuck go to India as civilians to map out the best strategy for air support of supplies to a famine-stricken area. When they get to the area they find that the Maharajah who asked for help is reported to be dead and the Maharajah's brother is now in charge. The former Maharajah's wife thinks her husband is still alive and asks Canyon for help.
