Under his alias of Hiram K. Hackenbacker, Brains installs a new safety device on a new airliner called the Skythrust. Later, Lady Penelope agrees to help fashion designer Francois LeMare hold a fashion show aboard the plane, as a dramatic location for the unveiling of his new fashion collection, which uses a secret new miracle fabric called Penelon. But then the Skythrust is hi-jacked by crooks intent on stealing the entire collection...
