|MacGyver travelled to
Central Asia to retrieve the firing mechanism of a captured missile being held at the crash site of a downed US fighter plane. However once he infiltrated the camp site he discovered that the planes pilot,
Taylor, was alive and being held captive giving MacGyver a second unexpected mission objective.
Although no specific country or
location was mentioned in reference to this assignment there has been some speculation that it could have been in Mongolia, although this would be incorrect as Mongolia isn't considered part of central Asia.
