OBSERVATIONS
As Flint and Airborne fire at a few Cobra Rattlers and CLAWs, there is a voice-over that seems to be out of place because as Flint follows a Rattler with a firing gun, he calmly explains while shooting at the Cobra forces that there are so many Joes missing then yells after destroying one of the Rattlers, "Where the heck is everybody?" Maybe Sunbow decided to cut out a scene with conversation and then place the dialogue in one of the fight scenes to liven it up. [928 kb]

Airborne's ESP powers are revealed for the first time in this episode and are explored further during "Operation Mind Menace."
