Sir Topham Hatt tells Thomas that he has to pick up a group of children from the airport and take them to a party picnic. When Thomas arrives at the airport, he meets a jet plane named Jeremy, who tells Thomas how wonderful it is to fly around. This made Thomas a bit jealous.
Along the way, Thomas had to wait for a signal, then a farmer had to move his cow off the line, then for Henry to pass with his train and a bridge that was under repair. At the picnic, Thomas tells Percy that he wishes that he was a jet plane so he would not have to wait for traffic. But Percy tells him that he is fine as he is.
After that, Thomas has to do his next job. He goes past the airport and comes across Jeremy. He tells Thomas that a storm is coming over where Sir Topham Hatt's picnic is, but there is no place to land. Thomas decides to race over back to the party and pick up all of his passengers. Then he had an idea to take the party to the airport at Jeremy's hanger. Everyone had a great time and Sir Topham tells Thomas and Jeremy that they are all Really Useful.
