Also known as "Wings of Death -- Albatross"
Lupin, Jigen, and Goemon are cooking and sharing a meal wondering where Fujiko is when suddenly she shows up in a great hurry, pursued by men with machine guns who in turn ruin the guys meal and camper. Jigen discovers the "present" Fujiko leaves them -- a spark-plug sized detonator for a nuke!
Smelling a score and wanting to save Fujiko, Lupin and crew rush to rescue her from the clutches of an esentric airplane collector who wants to sell nukes to anyone who can afford them.
|Miyazaki Hayao wrote and directed this episode and it shows. Lupin is a gentleman thief and wants to do the right thing. There's humor, good art (for its time), and a good but short story. The look on Fujiko's face after they've stripped her (you don't get to see much of anything thankfully) and not found the detonator is priceless!|
