Mister Rogers arrives with a locked case and a collection of keys. After sorting through the keys, he finds one that fits the lock perfectly and opens the case. Inside is a detailed model of an old-fashioned airplane. Mister Rogers talks about how some toys are very fragile and sometimes it is difficult to keep from touching things that are breakable.

Taking a different model plane from a drawer, he puts together a different toy -- one that can be played with. Heading out to the porch, Mister Rogers flies this toy plane before Mr. McFeely stops by with a film about a recent visit to an airport's air traffic control tower. After the film, Mister Rogers mentions that he was very interested in flying when he was younger -- interested enough that he even took a few flying lessons when he was in high school.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, H.J. Elephant is talking with Handyman Negri about the special key that will open any lock. Lady Elaine agrees that once this master key is found, they should use it to open the special room at her Museum-Go-Round that holds the gymnastic elephant toy.

Prince Tuesday arrives home from school and is presented with a new bicycle. He attempts to ride it but falls off on his first try. H.J. Elephant notices that a key has fallen from the bicycle -- a shiny key that flies when tossed in the air. It is clear that this is the master key they have been looking for.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the importance to taking your time when learning something new. He sings I Like to Take My Time before he concludes by making a paper airplane in the kitchen.
