  • White flies through a barn - the fighter plane is too large to follow, taking his wings off and coming out the otherside confused, with a chicken

Part 6: On a wing and a prayer

  • The lieutenant of the gorillas starts to work on making a glider out of the wreckage of the crashed zeppelin
  • Ravi suggests that the Nazi Pterodactyls could be used in some way to get back to Gorillatopia
  • The group decides that somehow they could be used to pull the glider

  • The village priest makes accusations that the group are demons.  White stares him down.
  • The Queen thinks Victor should beet his father, and the Queen would like to go too, but the only competent leader is a slave of no standing, not able to lead the nobles.
  • The plan is to take the slave “in to heaven” and have him descend to lead the people (on a parachute) with the blessings of  the Gods (possibly some tech)
  • The group and Victor make they way to the pterodactyl camp
  • Victor leaps onto a pterodactyl and Ravi almost manages to do it neatly
  • Four Nazis, also having the idea of using their semi-trained flying lizards to flee the plateau, and open fire with two machine guns.
  • White shoots one, and Ravi leads the flock of lizards following his large leader type lizard to swoop at the remainder, carrying the other machine gun nazi into the air before dropping him.
  • The flock is taken to where the Lieutenant and Finnegan have been converting the zeppelin into a glider.  The Queen and her slave are waiting there as well.
  • The various pterodactyls are harnessed to the glider and it takes off with everyone on board.
  • Gaining height above the clouds, the pterodactyls are released and the group glides down

  • The defenders are at the prison and the group lands on the roof
  • Ravi makes his way to the Gorrilla temple.
  • One of the council of Aunts confronts White and Kitty, but they manage to convince her to talk to Carruthers - the Gorrilla sent off previously from the nazi camp with evidence, whom the general had had locked up and forbidden everyone to speak to.
