"I never thought the skies over our own country could be so unfriendly."
― Captain of Mother Goose One[1]

Mother Goose One was the callsign of an Osean Air Defense Force C-5 transport plane that was deployed in the Circum-Pacific War.


On October 22, 2010, Mother Goose One participated in the top-secret transport of President Harling to North Point to hold peace talks with Yuktobanian Prime Minister Nikanor. The C-5's flight path crossed over Akerson Hill, which was protected by the OCDF's automated AA system. Due to its mission's secrecy, Mother Goose One was not transmitting a friendly IFF signal, causing it to be fired upon and damaged by the AA system.[1]

Wardog Squadron, which was performing a patrol mission nearby, escorted Mother Goose One safely through the AA system and defended it from Yuktobanian fighter aircraft incoming from the coast. Suddenly, a spy among the crew shot and killed the transport's captain and injured the co-pilot; others on board Mother Goose One managed to restrain the spy, and President Harling (masquerading as one "Mr. Cargo") took over the radio while his secretary, Tommy, assumed the controls.[1]

With Wardog's guidance, Mother Goose One performed a successful emergency landing at Akerson Hill. Following the landing, the 8492nd Squadron arrived in the airspace and relieved Wardog, which was running low on fuel, and stated it would provide air cover until a rescue squad arrived.[1]

In actuality, the 8492nd was a group of Belkan agents fueling the war between Osea and Yuktobania. The Belkans kidnapped President Harling[2] and either kidnapped or killed the copilot and remaining passengers.
