[ Story ]

Though Asahina's quick-thinking during a plane accident saved his captain's life; he has his own license taken away. He finally accepts a job with the Air Police among whose duties is the prevention of air smuggling into Japan.
One of the suspects is Angel Productions but Asahina is identified by club-owner Hayashi and henchman Kuroda and becomes a marked man. He learns, however, that the company is in charge of sending dancers overseas and that many of them disappear, some being found dead.
Witnessing one of Kuroda's secret meetings, Asahina decides that the time has come to do something about such lawlessness and races to the airport to intercept a plane he has learned is about to depart. One of the girls from whom they have been getting information is killed but she wrote down the number of the plane before her death.
Kuroda is piloting the plane and Asahina gives chase out over the Pacific. After a spirited battle, Kuroda is captured and another case is solved.
