CSI: Miami: In Plane Sight

After a man seems to steal Howard Burgess’ private jet, the police board the jet to have a look and uncover the body of Burgess himself in the jet’s toilet. While investigating how the body got there and who the man who tried to take the jet was, the CSIs uncover the fact that Burgess was the most hated man in Miami because he stole money from people. Talking to his wife in public, the team’s interrogation is disturbed when everyone in Miami wants his wife dead as well.

Cultural References
Title Reference: "In Plane Sight".

This title has double meanings; one referring to the use of airplanes in the episode, and one to the very common expression "In Plain Sight". This expression is a way of saying that something is very easy to see, whether it's really big or really unique. This episode therefore makes a spoof of the expression, as the CSIs have to find something not easy to see at all. With these two references put together, you get the episode plot in which the CSIs find a body in the toilet of an airplane, and the investigation reveals highly-hidden secrets.
