Dixie finds a way to take photographs of the cockpit instruments when the Baron goes on his next smuggling trip and the camera is found. The photos give the patrol a clue where the Baron's hideout is. The patrol finds the hideout, but the Baron takes off in the airliner and drops a bomb on his hideout, trapping Dixie inside.
