Synopsis for "The Ghost Raiders of the Sky"

The Reds send hydrogen balloons, carrying H-bombs, across the Iron Curtain and destroy two important cities in Central Europe, one of them a national capital. Blackhawk and his gang invade Eastern Europe using a repurposed balloon, only filled with helium. This makes a critical difference in the fighting that follows. Also they call in their long-range interceptors, by remote control, and they arrive in a timely manner. The Blackhawks gather photographic evidence of the origins of the H-bomb balloons, and also blow up a great deal of Soviet military equipment, before leaving in their Lockheed interceptors.

Notes

  • Super Communists
    • Splash page shows and describes the Blackhawk Jets falling out of the sky over the Himalayas. In the story, this does not happen.
  • Fight For Survival
    • Viper commands an army, with infantry and snake-head-motif tanks. He is arrested alive.
    • There is a continuity issue here. At the end of the first story of Blackhawk #17, Blackhawk believed that the late pirate submariner, Wilson, of Tornado Bay, was actually Chuck's father. He also believed that he had prevented Chuck from figuring this out. But in this story, Chuck believes that both of his parents are alive, and apparently so does Blackhawk. It has truly been written that Blackhawk is confusing.
  • Ghost Raiders of the Sky
    • A capital city in Central Europe, and another important city, are destroyed by H-Bomb explosions. Afterward none of this is ever mentioned again.
  • Also appearing in this issue of Blackhawk was:
    • Blackhawk: "The Last Days" (text story)
