The Hawks become bodyguards to a European scientist who's devised a formula for neutralizing atomic radiation. But certain political powers hire a hitman called The Sniper to keep the scientist from reaching his destination. The Sniper captures the Blackhawks and the scientist, and fires the Blackhawks into the sky on giant clay targets, and threatens to shoot them with a cannon if the scientist doesn't tell him the secret. But the Black Knights use special parachute uniforms to escape and the scientist bluffs the Sniper with a fake "atomic pen."
