Action Force #30 was released on 20th September 1987.

Original material

Sky Strike! Part Two

Above the Amazonian Jungle the Skystriker heads for the ground with Lady Jaye assuming they are doomed but Ace engages the throttle and refires the engines, pulling up and only just scraping the jungle trees. Meanwhile the battle continues and the Skystriker returns in time to drive off the last F.A.N.G.s. Flint is concerned that Action Force have lost the element of surprise in attacking the Cobra supply base but Ace tells him not to worry.
