Theme: A wonderful adventure can cure any case of boredom.
On a lazy afternoon, two bored brothers keep themselves busy by building and flying an airplane.

When LeVar takes a commerical airline flight, he finds out that airline employees do everything - from stocking up on meals and stowing luggage to flying the plane and caring for the passengers. He has some fun flying a remote control model airplane, and explores the history of flight through film clips, then experiences piloting a plane himself.
