Gizmoduck is asked by the army to protect a weapon displayed at the St. Canard Air Show. When Gizmoduck gets a hero's welcome in St Canard, Darkwing Duck becomes very jealous, at the same time Steelbeak plots to steel the new weapon while framing Darkwing. Gizmoduck and Darkwing must team up to defeat Steelbeak.
At the end of this episode, Steelbeak is seen for a moment standing in the back of the police truck with his hands behind his back as if he was handcuffed. Yet, when the vehicle drives off, he puts his hands around the window bars! Also, the vehicle's back door was open long enough to make a mistake. If he wasn't handcuffed, why didn't he just escape, presuming no armed guards, police, etc, weren't around?
