Action Force #31 was released on 27th September 1987.
Sky Strike! Part Three
At dawn in South Aermica Ace and Lady Jaye fly the Skystriker towards the Cobra base which launches missiles. The Skystriker releases chaff that fools and destroys the missiles. The jet drops fifty fragmentation bombs and destroys the base. Then two Dragonflies piloted by Wild Bill and Flint fly in to clear up. The Skystriker heads back to the U.S.S. Flagg but Lady Jaye spots they are almost out of fuel. She declines Ace's offer to eject and the jet reaches the U.S.S. Flagg, with the engines failing just as they arrive but Ace manages to land on deck with only one landing wheel destroyed.
