After Smitty and Tabs have been handed over to the medical staff, Seamus will pull Kirk, Felix and the Major aside. "I have been thinking," he says in a low voice, "how could Wilbur be aware of our presence here and how did he know that we were going to the airport? I see a few possible scenarios:One, Wilbur saw us at the pawn shop when he was dropping off the boy and got suspicious. I find this rather impropable, as some strangers browsing a pawn shop in itself wouldn't be that alarming.""Two, Wilbur was warned by Mr. B. after Felix and Tabs first visited the pawn shop. If this is the case, why did Mr. B. give up Wilbur's adress so readily and why did Wilbur return the boy to the pawn shop if he knew we were waiting there?""Three, Smitty alerted Wilbur while we were having lunch. It may sound silly but I think we have to consider all options.""Four, Mr. Wilder alerted Wilbur. If this is the case, he could have done so long ago and Wilbur could have made a hit at us at some earlier point."Seamus sighs. "All in all, none of it really adds up. What do you think, Major? Perhaps some fresh eyes on this matter could uncover something I don't see?"
he would like to make a few phonecalls to Mr. Wilder, Mr. Dumont and the police in Elisabeth City and Camden. He will tell Mr. Wilder and Mr. Dumont that they are now at the airport for medical check up, after having been intentionally hit by a truck driven by the person that young Dumont was last seen with a week ago and that he will inform the police. Assuming he can find their number, he will explain the situation to the police, referring to the damaged brown truck, possible address of Wilbur Smith and his connection with the missing person.
"You'll both live," the doctor said.
"upping the horse power" and "more RPMs is the only way to get a stable flight at above 40,000 feet."
Have you noticed anything unusual in Smith's activities lately, or for that matter, in Robbie's. I'm afraid that lad appears to be caught up in whatever Smith is up to."
"I'd really like to examine Wilbur's and Robbie's aircraft. Mr. Clark, you may not believe it of a young woman like me, but I'm a pilot and a mechanic too!"
"A week ago Wilbur Smith was seen at a pawnshop in Camden with a young person by the name of Dumont. Since then young Dumont went missing and we think they might have gone to the airport. Have you seen or heard anything about that?"
"It seems he has been dealing in recovered parts from failed high altitude flights. Parts he has no business having."
"They were looking for airplane related objects."
"Robbery is too simple a term. Various parts from planes that disappeared attempting high altitudes in different countries have passed through Wilbur Smith. How he got them is unknown, but such a collection shouldn't really exist at all, unless something previously unsuspected is happening. If those flights were somehow forced down, for example, by some single agency, collection of their parts would be feasible."The Major shrugs his shoulders. "Right now we have a lot more questions than answers. And I have a feeling that Smith will be holing up somewhere. Unless we get lucky and the police pick him up before he finds out they're looking for him, we may not see him again, at least for the near future. Oh, I think we may have neglected to mention I met all these new friends coming to their aid after Smith rammed their car with that truck of his."
