THE STORY
A huge defense plant opens in Bleedswell, and everyone from Hooterville plans to move up there to take high paying jobs with crazy benefits.

Lisa doesn't want to lose all of her friends, so she suggests that Hooterville opens up there own defense plant. A vote is taken, and the town decides to re-open the Hooterville Airplane Company, with Oliver as the president (Since it was his wife's suggestion).

Oliver tries to talk them out of it, explaining that jets are far too complicated to make and would cost millions of dollars. However, as it turns out, Hooterville still has an "irrevocable" contract with the U.S. Army to deliver six WWI JN-4 biplanes (Jenny's), so The Hooterville Airplane Company re-opens it's doors (At Simpson's barn).

The military is none to pleased to discover that they are unable to get out of this ridiculous contract, so they decide to order Oliver back into active duty as "Chief Test Pilot for the Hooterville Airplane Company."

The big day arrives, as the first Jenny rolls off of the assembly line. However, the contract seems destined to remain unfulfilled, as, when Lisa christens the plane with a bottle of champagne, the JN-4 falls apart into a million pieces.
