Roadblock is on his way to a chili cook-off, but is spotted by Cobra agents at the airport. The Cobras find Roadblocks' travel reservation, and transfer him to Swan Charter Airlines, a Cobra owned airline.
Roadblock finds he can't get out of his seat, and is attacked by the passenger next to him. Using Grandma Hinton's Chili Powder, he escapes that passenger, but finds out that all the passengers are Cobra agents and are equipped with knives and taser guns. One Viper, Igor, tries shooting Roadblock with gun, breaking the emergency door window and depressurizing the plane. The Cobra pilots are able to regain control of the plane, and Roadblock escapes into the cargo hold.
Roadblock gets a hold of a rocket launcher and is able to open the cargo doors. Igor attacks Roadblock again, but Roadblock jumps out of the airplane, taking Igor with him. Roadblock is able to maneuver around to fire the rocket launcher at the plane, destroying it. The back blast from the launcher also knocks Igor off his back, and Roadblock parachutes safely to the ground. Ace finds Roadblock, and rescues him.
